    Nope, no error message. As a matter of fact I did this with Windows Mail in resetting up the email account with the old email account data. (Which was suggested by the documentation that I had.)

    Hi,
    Problem:
    What you are probably experiencing is that your standard user can launch some executables, but cannot launch others. That's because some exe are "not signed/certified", and the security policy blocks them by default, instead of prompting for elevation. I had this today with my kid trying to run flyff (game).

    The solution:
    gpedit.msc
    > computer configuration> windows settings>
    security settings> local policies> security options! once there update "User Account Control: Behavrio of the elevation prompt for standard users:" change it to "prompt for credentials". this will allow unsigned programs that are currently automatically blocked, to prompt for elevation. you'll still need to provide an admin pw, but at least you don't have to logoff.

    OHH NO!
    I had admin privilegies on my work pc (by an accident), and then I did the:

    "Run cmd.exe with administrative previlliges and type

    secedit /configure /cfg %windir%\inf\defltbase.inf /db defltbase.sdb /verbose

    +
    restart"

    And now I am a limited user again, please help me undo this.
    I did not have the intention to do this, I thought this would remove the "blocked by group policy" rule thing.

    Please help!

    What made you think that edit would fix it?
