The error message "Cannot proxy process 1234 due to insufficient privileges. Process may be a service." shows up multiple times in the PGP Desktop Log as a warning.
This error message shows because of the way how PGP Desktop MAPI works:
PGP Desktop for Outlook plugs in to Outlook by hooking up to the Outlook.exe process. To avoid missing the Outlook process being started, PGP Tray automatically scans every process that is being started and checks if it is Outlook.
If any process can not be asked if it is Outlook.exe then you will see this error message in the PGP Log. In most cases, this is because there is a Endpoint Security Tool (Lock down tool, Virus Scanner, etc.) installed.
To find out, which process this is, please open Windows Task Manager and display the Process ID (Task Manager > View > Select Columns > PID (Process Identifier)). Then check, which process has the ID from the error message. As soon as you find the process causing this error message, you can allow PGP Tray to hook up this process (which will not do any harm, as PGP Tray only looks up if this is Outlook.exe).
If you do not wish to change your security tool to allow PGP Tray to scan it, then just ignore the error message from the PGP Desktop Log.
