Software Restriction policy. How to amend

  Dobba 12:06 22 Oct 2009

I am using Vista Home Premium with all available updates and Kaspersky Anti Virus.When I try to get into Windows Mail, an error message appears "A software restriction policy is preventing windows mail from opening. Contact your system administrator for more info."

This is a home computer and I am the administrator but I cannot see how to free up Windows Mail.
Can anyone help?

Thanks again. I had hours of fiddling trying to sort this one before your message solved it.
