    Where are you running it?

    On a desktop PC or a server?

    It could be blocked by a software restriction policy using a hash.

    Have you looked in Group Policy > User Config. > Policies > Windows Settings >Security Settings > Software restriction policies > Additional rules

    I have a chrome blocking policy (see attached), could that be causing it? The only problem is that this policy isnt applied to one of the tested users affected but is another however both get denied.

    It may be...you don't say what the .exe is that you are trying to run?

    Ok, in that case I would take a look in the log viewer on your PC and see if you can see any warning as to what is blocking the .exe

    That may help.....

    have you checked the PCs local policy? and have you checked the exe's properties to see if its security setting is set to blocked. (this exe comes from another PC blah blah)

    the local policy doesnt differ from machines that do work, which i cant explain.... Im also getting random uac style dialog boxes when i try and delete folders/files saying i need to take permission but the account im using is a full local admin and a domain admin.
