This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer

no PC stated
no OS state
no operation tried, that fails, doing what actions.
we can not guess any of that.
if only on the internet, tell the URL address of where you were.

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.

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. "

Keep receiving restriction error

it sounds like your not loged in with administaters

good luck

Folder error

do you have some virus in your sistem.
please download this antivirus nod32 + spybot search and destroy.

Can not add or remove a program from my computer.

Log off and Log back on as an administrator. You are most likely logged on as a user with limited privilages.
