Windows 7 Software Restriction Policy

I have a Windows 7 Professional workstation in a 2008 Server domain and this one workstation (and this one workstation only) has a software restriction policy in place that won't let it run Trend Micro. I have looked through the domain policies and the local workstation policies and both say there are no software restrictions in place.

The event log on the workstation said the SrpRuleGuid is  {196C5682-FAD7-48B3-8D07-97A838F30EDA} and it gives me the path to Trend. Any idea how I can find this restriction?

Look it up in regedit, that ID. Search for it.
Could be very well that a virus set this policy via direct registry manipulation.

That was one of the first places I looked. No joy.

I am going to correct myself. I searched for it a second time and it did show up. I didn't do something right the first time. Deleting the entries did the trick.
