    restrictions error message

    WinNT4
    On a users pc, when the user is performing any task in any application randomly the following error message is displayed ' Restrictions - This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.Please contact your system administrator.'
    The error msg is displayed - then all the applications minimize & close, then the pc makes a warning beeping message.

    I have deleted the local & NT profile. This didnt resolve as the error msg still displayed.
    We swapped her pc for a new pc & the error msg continues to be displayed.

    any ideas?

    Re: restrictions error message

    Presumably this is on a network? It sounds like there must be some restrictions put on that profile somewhere, and if by swapping pc's it still occurs, it would point to the server side.
    Is the user running a local or roaming profile?
    Anything of note in the event logs on the client and/or server?
    Is there any common factor, such as having IE open each time?
    Is this a recent development?
