Run As "Run this program with restricted access"

I am having a problem on one of my servers that was recently hit with a virus. It seems, when logged on as administrator, I cannot access any of the applications in administrative tools by just clicking on them. I have to Right Click  -> Runas -> then uncheck the option "Run this program with restrictive access" and then the applications (Computer Management, DNS, ADUC) will run normally. My first thought is that the virus (w32.sillyFDC) changed a reg key and turned the restricted access option on under Runas for all applications. Has anyone ever come across this or know of a way to shut this option off by default? Any help is appreciated!

Open up the properties of one of your MSC shortcuts. Go to general tab, look at "Opens with:". It most likely says Unknown. Click the "Change" button, and browse to c:\windows\system32\mmc.exe. Once that is selected, click OK until you are out, and attempt to open the other MSC files. The problem should be resolved. I had this same problem after a bout with sillyFDC

This was actually being caused by a virus. Once the virus was removed fully, it went back to normal
