    Need more information.

    Operating system? Edition? Service pack?

    Is your machine on a domain?

    Are you a local administrator?

    Flagged for a mod to move once we know which operating system.

    Version : 5.1.2600

    Not in a domain

    I am the Administrator

    I have backed up the registry using “Ccleaner” software before the problem occurred and imported that back up through the regedit. But no result.

    Try doing a system restore to a date it was working,

    start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore.

    Double check that your account is a member of the Administrators group. IT sounds like something may have been corrupted somewhere, in which case the best option would be to format and reinstall the operating system and recover your data from a recent backup.

    Re: I can’t able to open ‘gpedit.msc’?

    No I can’t access secpol.msc. I am getting an error message ” Access Denied”

    Now I am facing new problem.

    I am using 256 kbps ,limited data transfer package.

    My ISP is showing that I have downloaded 600 MB which exceeded the maximum limit.

    And it has cut down 5 days from my valid days.

    I have faced the same problem in the last month and ISP has cut down 10 valid days.

    I think some one is hijacking my system .

    I think it is better to reinstall the OS.

    But how many times? I am really worried about these issues….

    Some times I am getting an windows system error message that “there is an IP conflict in your network”

    I think reinstalling the OS is not a good solution….Am I right?

    Re: I can’t able to open ‘gpedit.msc’?

    And services.msc?
    Can you run MMC.exe?

    try also this:
    Start | Run,
    runas /user:administrator “AT.exe hh:mm /interactive explorer.exe /separate”[/CODE]
    Where [I]hh.mm[/I] must be a time at least two minutes later than the time showed on te computer clock (or instead of the at scheduler you can also use PsExec.exe with the /s switch to start windows explorer, then you don’t have to wait the two minutes).

    When Windows explorer is started this way (now being runned as the [B]system[/B]account), browse to the folder,
    ..WINDOWSsystem32
    and double click GPEDIT to open the console.

    If you think your system has been compromised, then yes reinstalling the OS would be a good move. But, you also need to take measures to ensure that your system is not compromised again. What firewall, anti-virus and anti-malware are you using?

    Hay!! – If you are not able to open any .Msc file and getting Access denied. Please try the below steps. As i also suffered a lot to fix this issue.

    Sol – Find Gpmc.msc – “Openwith” – select (browse mmc.exe “c:windowssystem32) mmc to open as default.

    Sometimes due to some hack MMC will not linked to open any MSC files.

    Its work for me

    Do you have a WIRELESS ACCESS POINT on your home network? If so, that’s probably been breached and someone is probably leeching off of your internet access.

    While I wouldn’t dispute that that would provide a workaround to some problems, I’d be surprised if that got around the Access Denied message.

    Which protecting software would you suggest?

    #341441

    Re: I can’t able to open ‘gpedit.msc’?

    I suspect most of us on here would recommend doing away with Norton. Personally I recommend NOD32 for antivirus and Windows Defender for anti-malware.

    FYI, you can edit your posts – you don’t need to post three in a row.

    I suggest ditching Norton 360 ASAP!

    If you want the best antivirus (IMO) then use NOD32 (http://www.eset.com) or if you want decent free AV for your home computer then I’d go with AVG (http://free.grisoft.com).

    Ad-Aware is no longer a good product. I use Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D for general malware scans. Going deeper on computers that have issues (not mine of course ;)) I use other tools.

    Good advice ;)

    Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Virus Bulletin rates NOD32’s effectiveness at 96%, while AVG only scored 50%. Explains the price tag…

    :bowdown:

    Second (Third?) that.
    IMO NOD32 is the best on the market, at this moment. I use it in my own company for over 3 years, and i’m still impressed. And as i’m a reseller, i “push it out to customers”..

    Well, the reason that i answered in this thread was, AVG isn’t free for commerciel use.
    As far as i know, AVG Network Edition, is a free edition with support, and a few other things.
    A 5-user AVG Network Edition costs 165€- 5-user NOD32 Business Edition AV costs ~150€ (approx. with DKK-€ calculation, tax may interfere the calculation) – You do the math ;)

    :offtopic: Btw.. It is really annoying that the Exchange plugin only works with 2.7.xx – I don’t like Symantec, but their remoteinstaller is more user-friendly, or am i missing something.

    Last line, and sorry for off-topic: I really like this forum, alot of knowledge. And writing in english helps me been better, it isn’t my native language, as you can see :lol:

    #341669

    Re: I can’t able to open ‘gpedit.msc’?

    3.0 for Exchange is due out shortly. The latest version of Remote Administrator fixes a lot of the bugs with push installation too.

    I wasn’t sure about the licencing terms for AVG free – never needed to be seeing as I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole.
