    Windows 10 Pro

    Can't update (due to group policies?)

    I recently upgraded from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro. Each day I get a message that updates failed, with a 'Some settings are managed by your organization' message. I found a "fix" online that requires the use of gpedit.msc, but when I tried to run that I got a message "could not create the snap-in". This computer is stand-alone and has never been managed by any organization, so I am at a loss about what to do. Any help/ideas would be appreciated!
