1903 - Unable to run cmd.exe as admin since upgrading to 1903 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have many machines that are displaying the following message (blue box) when you attempt to run as program as admin - "This app has been blocked by your system administrator"


    when user's try to delete, they get prompted to run as admin. These user's do have the admin password, but once again.. they get a warning "This program can't run - this program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator".

    All the user is trying to do is delete chrome icon from the desktop.

    I have been searching high and low and have not found a way to disable the alerting and allow the user to perform the task,

    Any help would be appreciated as this is causing a big issue on my end.

  • As a follow up. I have disabled smartscreen in my GP, and that did NOT correct the issue.

    Smartscreen is enabled in 1803 and 1809.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for posting in our forum.

    "This program can't run - this program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator".

    Based on my experience, this alert will be displayed if we have configured Applocker or Software Restriction Policy and the application is blocked by policies.

    For further troubleshoot, I will suggest you collect group policy to verify the current applied policies, modify the current policies or temporally disable it if required.

    Best Regards,

    William
