I am trying to install software on a Windows Server 2003 server.  When I try to download the file, I get, "your current security settings do not allow this files to be downloaded".  I am logged in as the administrator on a windows server 2003 machine.  I tried to run gpedit.msc, but I get access is denied.  Whatever administrator rights where there are gone.  Whoever administered this server really locked it down to where the administrator cannot do administrator functions.  Need help fixing this.
