Changing Group Policy

by nigil800 / July 5, 2015 4:43 PM PDT

Dear Reader,

I downloaded a game called Pacapong to my laptop computer. The game was packaged in a ZIP file. After clicking on the Run button on the installer, I was informed that the program is blocked by group policy. I have Windows Seven Home Premium. How can I change the group policy to allow the game? If I can change the group policy, which element of the policy should I change?

Thank you for answering my question(s). Have a magnificent day.

Unzip it all to a folder and run it from there.
