Cannot move through an open site

Web filters and policies sometimes pick up a site that should not be filtered. Contact your IT dept, and have it placed in an exceptions list or modify policy.

Windows error messages

"Operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer"

start >run>regedit
go to: REGEDIT - registry editor
When in registry editor: HKEY_CURRENT_USER – right click for permissions
Advanced Security Settings under 1st tab permissions
You will probably get this error message, "You can't remove restricted because this object is inheriting permissions from its parent.
To remove restricted, you must prevent this object from inheriting permissions. Turn off the option for inheriting permissions, and then try removing RESTRICTED again.
· Unclick: include inheritable permissions from this object’s parent
· Windows security warning: options to add/ remove/ cancel
· Click Remove inherited parent permissions
Denied all access
Continue – delete restricted
Once removed,
Follow this path in registry editor:
Right click (Default)
Change value data from (in my case Chrome – it could be Firefox as well):
From: ChromeHTML To: htmlfile
From: FirefoxHTML To: htmlfile
Repeat steps for .htm, .shtml, .xht if they exist

E-mails are coming in with links in them.However, whenever I click on the link I get a message saying that "This operaton has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please...

Go to control program. Select user accounts. Make sure the user you are using is an administrator user. If not turn that option on on setup a new user that has administrator privliges and logon as that user.

This operation has been canceled due to restriction in effect on this computer please contact your computer administrator.

Im not sure if this is actually for a barcode scanner...But if its for a computer i have a suggestion to try.
When running the program that is giving you that error, instead of just normally double clicking, right click on it. Then hit RUN AS AN ADMINISTRATOR.
Your error sounds like a permissions issue, so that should solve it. If not, please comment back with some more specifics (OS, if its for a barcode scanner or not, etc)

Thumbs up if this heps you!!
Thanks! Good Luck!

Control panel not responding

I asume you are getting this error "This Operation Has Been Cancelled Due to Restrictions in Effect on This Computer" This is cause when your computer administrator is trying to keep you out of certain areas of the computer, in your case the control panel. "If you are an administrator, you can verify the policies that are enabled. To do this, click User Configuration, click Administrative Templates, and then click System. "
