  1. App blocked by user account control


    Hi,


    I have been using the MYOB app for several years and the last time I used it was in March 2020. However, two weeks ago, i was unable to access it with a message that says


    "This app has been blocked for your protection.

    An Administrator has blocked you from running this app. For more information, contact the administrator......"


    I am also the administrator of the app. I have tried to run the app both as user and administrator but to no success.


    I have right-clicked on the application's exe file, clicked on 'Properties', and 'General' tab to try unblocking it. However, i am unable to find the 'unblock' checkbox in the 'General' tab.


    Appreciate any help and advice from the community.


    Thanks

    Joc

    :)

    App blocked by user account control

    User Account Control blocks an app

    I have tried every suggestion that I have seen on this bug and still cannot get around it! I downloaded some genealogy software called Legacy 8, but Windows won't let me run the Setup file. I get a pop up that says:

    User Account Control

    This app has been blocked for your protection.

    An administrator has blocked you from running this app. For more information, contact the administrator.

    Program name: Legacy8Setup.exe

    Publisher: Not Trusted

    File Origin: Hard drive on this computer

    Program location: C:\Users\.............

    But when I click on the file properties, there is no option to unblock as in the instructions I've seen here and on other sites. I even tried a tech chat with Microsoft, but the tech was clueless! I could tell by her questions that she didn't understand
    my problem. If I can't get any help here, I guess I'll just have to take it to Office Depot or somewhere.
