Running Control Panel as admin in Windows 7
Posted on 2011-09-08
I have applied a User GPO to disable the Programs and Features in Windows 7. I am trying to give our Help Desk the ability to then do a runas to open up Control Panel to uninstall programs.
I have tried several things found here and other sites, but it still tells me that the "Systems Administrator has disabled this...". Here is an example of what I am running.
runas /u:domain\adminaccount cmd.exe
runas /u:domain\adminaccount "control appwiz.cpl"
runas /u:domain\adminaccount "explorer.exe /seperate"
They all prompt me for the password, and all open up the tool. However, it still gives me the disabled message.
When I log on as the admin account I have full access to the Programs and Features.
Thanks in advance!
