Unzipping .ZIP files blocked by Group Policy

When I attempt to extract a ZIP file, I get a message:

This program is blocked by group policy.

 

I had no problems extracting ZIP files two week ago. Something has been changed to my Group Policy that is preventing the (x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\7z.exe to run.

 

I am logged in as the Plex Admin. I have a Plex Deluxe Hosting account.

 

Here is the complete message I get:

 

Unable to extract /httpdocs/Maps/Phones/app283.zip: Unable to start (C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /c C:\Program Files "(x86)\Parallels\Plesk\admin\bin\7z.exe t -tzip G:\PleskVhosts\davidapps.net\httpdocs\Maps\Phones\app283.zip "): (1260) This program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator. at Plesk impersonation(PipeServer:Smiley FrustratederverThread::impersonateRunAs line 726) at Unable to unpack archive G:\PleskVhosts\davidapps.net\httpdocs\Maps\Phones\app283.zip(UnpackArchive:Smiley SurprisednRunAsUser line 2709)

 

Please help!

 

Best regards,

I have the same problem Smiley Sad and I hadn't any problems a few days ago, I have Deluxe as well.

AHTA,

 

Thanks for confirming this.

 

I had no issues extracting zip files for the last 4 years until this recent change to the Group Policy which is preventing me from running the exe file.

 

I can transfer files via FTP. However this is a very slow process. Uploading a ZIP file and then extracting it is 20 times faster specially when you have a large set of small files. This is why I need the Group Policy to be rolled back to the way it was before.

 

What do you think would be the best approach to contact a GoDaddy System Administrator to make this change?

 

Best regards,

 

David
