    windows smart screen disabled -- this setting is managed by your syste

    when I try to turn smart screen on, the options are greyed out, and I am told that "this setting is managed by your system administrator"
    I tried running the reg file "Set_SmartScreen_to_get_administrator_approval.reg" but it didn't change anything.

    okay, I got it sorted out.

    in group policy, it is under:
    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > File Explorer
    I played around with enabling and disenabling it, until I could get an ungreyed option in "control panel/security and maintenance\change windows smart screen settings"
    I changed it to a different setting. After changing it to a different setting, I was able to change it back to the default setting.
