    UAC reverting on Dell laptops fresh install of Win10


    I have a dell laptop that I'm attempting to change the UAC settings on. I have logged in as both a machine admin and a domain admin, changed the setting for UAC to notify me only when programs try to make changes to my computer. Then did a reboot. The settings held fine for 24 hours, but the next morning when the user logs back in, the UAC settings go back to their previous settings. Is this a known issue or has anyone else seen this? In my windows 7 or 8.1 systems I don't see this happening, it appears to only happen on my handful of win10 laptops.

    So your machines are joined to a domain?

    Yes I've checked group policy. The Win10 machines are the only ones with this particular issue and it's not all but only 2 so far. These laptops go offsite and come back into the domain.
