secpol.msc

    Question

  • I recently had to reload my system with the cd provided by dell, and I have been attempting to run the following file:  c:\windows\system32\secpol.msc, and I am unable to do so.  the system provides the following error message:

    MMC cannot open the file C:\Windows\System32\secpol.msc.  This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC.  This may alos be beause you do not have sufficient access rights to the file.

    I have administrator rights, and I have attempted to run it as the administrator.  The O/S is Windows Vista home premium.  

    I have searched Microsofts web sites, but I am unable to locate any help.  Does any one have any ideas for me?

    thank you.

  • Hi there,

     

    Do you know why this is?  If I find a download for it will it work in Windows 7 home premium?  I'm studying computing and tech support at college and I'd really like to have it on my system.

     

    Thanks for any further help on this.

     

    Regards,

    MM
