SO i recently got my hands on a 2007 Dell Latitude D620.

It used to belong to a broker in the company i work for, he's getting a new one and gave this to me as a sort of thank you.
I've had one of the company laptops before, theres a lot of security programmes i had to uninstall. reinstall a lot of things too.

one problem with this one, I cannot launch itunes. When I downloaded it from apple.com, it launched itself.

but when i try and launch it, i get the follwing error;

without going back to my company and contacting one of the IT guys, which would be a pain... is there any way of bypassing this.

I have tried setting itunes as my default media player and even when i launch an mp3 file by double clicking it on my dt, i get this error.

the only way itunes ran was when it auto launched after install.

thanks for your helo in advance.

The PC was either setup with restrictions as to what programs could be run on it, or it's a malware infection.

If the former, refer to your company's IT department. It would be wrong of us to suggest ways by which you could circumvent these restrictions.

If they tell you no restrictions have been set by them, it's probably malware. Please post on the malware forum:

It is most likely the former,

would you even be able to point me in the right direction of how to get around this?
I cannot really talk to the IT department, the laptop is now for my own use, but i doubt they will facilitate my questions about how to bypass their restrictions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If this laptop could be legitimately given to you by this broker and is no longer considered company property, then you need to talk to the IT department about removing restrictions that they typically place on corporate laptops. However, if this is still considered a corporate laptop, then you shouldn't be bypassing the restrictions and you'll get no help from us in doing so. It seems unlikely that this broker should just be able to pass on company property like that though - most IT departments I know have inventory and systems in place to track assets like this.
