Limited users unable to update the virus signature files

Note! Instructions below are intended for stand-alone computers only. If your computer belongs to a network, system administrators can apply a security template called "compatws.inf" to all domain controllers. This is a quicker and easier way to deploy security policies to the registry keys and to the program files via group policy. The "Security Configuration and Analysis" can also be used to apply the same "compatws.inf" to all domain controllers. For further information about security templates, see Microsoft's website.

Users who have limited access to the computer may encounter problems when updating the virus signature files. They may receive error messages such as:

If you want users with limited access to be able to update the virus signature files you will have to give them Full Control of the F-PROT folder and write access to the Updater's registry key.
