    Window's 10

    Disabling Organization Controls

    Alright, So my problem is, I went from a Simple Window's 8.1 to Window's 10, AKA Upgraded, And so I heard from a good friend that window's 10 allegedly spies on people and that I should use "Destroy Window's Spying Lite" or DWS Lite, Which I did, And After Quite some time now, I'd say a year or so, I've now noticed that there's this message that say's "Some settings are managed by your organization.", Now I know this is due to me using DWS Lite, By how do I actually disable that, I'm on a generic Window's 10 Home Based OS, I've looked at some of the other threads about it, And one to install "gpedit.msc", Which I've now done, But when I look at it, There's nothing to really be found.

    Hi Codymatt and welcome to Tenforums.

    mmm...good luck with that. You might undo everything you did with DWS Lite and try a repair install using an in-place upgrade. Personally, I think you will have enough problems that only a clean install will fix things; at least, that's what I've seen from past experience.

    Hi, there are plenty of threads on this forum on 'Some settings are managed' - feel free to search for this using the white search box above.

    In some of those I have posted some ideas on this, as have others.

    Simple possibility: download install and run Spybot Anti-beacon. It will show you what is 'immunised'. There's an undo button. If you're lucky, clicking undo may fix this. Otherwise please feel free to research the forum as above.
