Cannot use EXE files at college

  1. At college, im not able to use an exe files whatsoever. The security system has blocked them, so when i go to open putty.exe for example, a message saying blocked by adminstrator comes up.

    Is there any way to get around this? We use windows xp operating systems, and i have tried every way in the book to try and get around the security, but i just cant do it.

    I want to use my compilers in school :(

    You really should ask the Sys Admin about what you want to do. I think you need to be fair to them , it is very expensive to setup/maintain College size networks.
    Give them the benefit of the doubt, they may have procedures in place to accommodate what you are after.

    I already have, he is clueless to be honest, and say they cant permit exe's to be allowed because somebody messed up the system beforehand. I have hours free every day at college, and cant do anything :|

    find a computer that doesn't belong to the college and run it. (Prefarably your own)
