Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.2


Attempting to run the Group Policy Helper tool results in the following manner:
1. Launching IE as run as administrator
Restricted desktops where elevated rights to IE are not allowed, that would give complete access to the Machine.

2. Enabling protected mode
Running IE in protected mode on Windows 7 and doesn't fix the problem. Its the websites interaction with UAC.


Workaround: see Novell Documentation for a workaround for this issue. In some cases, attempting to workaround the issue using IEXPLORE.EXE is not possible in an enterprise environment.
