Why I cannot access MMC despite I am an Administrator on my PC plus Domain?

Posted on 2008-10-01
Last Modified: 2008-10-17
I am a user in the AD and was added as an administrator. When I am logging on default.bat file on the server is not working.(default.bat: It is a Log on script file used to run the TREND MICRO Auto.pcc and other functions like mapping to a Server Folder).
No polices are enabled in the group policy. I am already cannot use the RUN command(MMC) form my computer. A message showing that " RUN command is restricted you should see your administrator/Press any key to continue".
So NO updates for Trend Micro will be updated.

Are you sure there isn't any policies active on the Domain?
The Default Domain policy will be active, maybe there is settings in there that is giving you the problem.

Run gpresult from the commandline to ensure that no policies are being applied to you system.  If there are no domain policies someone may have set a local policy and gpresult would tell you that was being applied also.

Dear All,
It seems that in the "Task and Start Menu Properties" (VISTA VERSION) the "RUN COMMAND" check box is not found.
How to install or to recover?
