  1. An Administrator has blocked you from running this app..


    I have a calendar program that I have been using for years Calendar Creator. Suddenly, after the latest Win 10 update, I get the message below. I AM the administrator. The only way I can get the program to run is to go to the command prompt with administrator privileges, and run it from there. When I look at the properties for that app, under security it lists my user name with 'special' privileges. In no other app do I see my user name listed as special or administrator. Apparently, Microsoft has closed all it's help desks because they are listed as being available from 0600-0601.

    an administrator has blocked you from running this app


    I am trying out this 'getprivate' software and it installed correctly. When it run for first time it has no problem. when I close the windows, next time I launch it, it won't open, a window pop up, 'an administrator has blocked your from this app.

    I did some research on web about this error. I tried turned off user control, change user type from administrator to limited. still doing the same.



    any suggestions??
