Admin rights blocked when HIPS8.8.2482 installed on Windows 7???

Has anybody encountered this before? Unable to access regedit, run nslookup or ping anything. Once HIPS is removed all the access to these things returns.

Thanks.

It sounds like an (custom) IPS signature maybe causing this.  Try:

KB67056 - Third-party application stops working or isimpaired after McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention is installed or content isupdated
