Windows Movie Maker will not open
Posted: 29 Sep 2007 11:20 AM
Dear all,

I need your help with my Windows Movie Maker please. I can't even open my WMM. When I try to open it, this error message appears:

"Windows cannot open this program because it has been prevented by a software restriction policy. For more information, open Event Viewer or contact your system administrator."

So I opened Event Viewer and it just confused me even more; I couldn't understand anything there.

I can't open WMM so I can't use the Help - About steps to find out what version my WMM is; but I went to the moviemk.exe file and look at its Properties and see that the product version is: 2.1.4026.0

I use a Toshiba Qosmio laptop with nVidia G-force FX. I don't know if this is useful information.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Sounds like the administrator account has not given you permission to use certain software....is this your home computer?

Cuss, act rude... be ungrateful....go ahead, make my day!

No. I'm always signed in as administrator. I read online somewhere that my graphic driver was at fault, but no instruction as to how to fix this was given.

2 questions...
have you tried updating the drivers or been to the Navidia site for support?
Do you have software called 'Folderlock' installed? if so, uninstall it and retest...
