I?m assuming this is on the local GPO? If so, and you implemented this
within the user configuration side of the GPO, try this. Go into
c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\user and delete or rename the file called
registry.pol. Then from a command prompt, issue a gpupdate /force and that
should clear up the problem.

Subject: [gptalk] I can't access the GPO Editor because of a policy.



I enabled the "Execute applications only from accepted application list"
policy, but only added the mmc console with the snap in for the GPO Editor,
but now I can't access it, so I can't remove that policy (or any other
policy since I can't open the editor). I'm guessing that I can't access the
console because mmc.exe isn't in the accepted application list :\

How can I disable this policy or remove the policies completely?

I tried in Safe Mode, but the policies were implemented too. :S

Thanks in advance for any info on this matter. :)
