    Windows Defender - Some Settings Are Managed by your Organization


    Hi guys I need help I am very scared of this red message I am having with the red letters that says "Some settings are managed by your organization". It only occurs under Windows Defender Settings and it just stays there nowhere else to be found. Is it dangerous to have this message ? and how do I fix it ? Help please. Prior to this I have installed some third party antivirus's they are the following -
    1. Comodo Internet Security Premium 10
    2. Malwarebytes
    3. Zemana AntiMalware
    4. UnhackMe

    Those 4 only. Now here is a picture of the problem

    Hi, it simply means you have a Group Policy setting different to default which is being detected. MS's thinking is that organisations use the Group Policy Editor to configure and constrain systems they use, to impose limits or restrictions, for example. The message is confusing and unhelpful for private users.

    Were you to search the forum for this message, your eyes would be opened, and possible solutions found.

    Have you ever made changes to try to deal with so-called privacy or telemetry concerns (things supposedly being reported to MS)?

    Please start with post #2, and note an in-place upgrade repair mentioned in this thread does not help.

    Run CMD as admin and copy/paste:

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender" /f

    But most likely, one of your anti-malware software will disable WD again.

    Your solution does not help it gives me the following Access Denied and or even taking out the quotes it gives me Type "Reg Delete / ? " for usage. The Thing is Windows Defender is not Disabled its working it says Windows Defender Periodic Scanning is ON. I am just worried about that message.

    Each post has a number. Your last is numbered #5 which you can see in the top right. This is #6. (# is a common symbol for 'number').

    1. Click on the above link.

    2. When you have clicked on that link, look for #2 in the top right and start reading there.

    3. See if anything helps you.

    I hope that is very clear.

    - for example, have you used tools such as O&O Shutup or Spybot Antibeacon.

    If something is not clear, please ask a clear question. Thanks.

    Do you have the Premium Malwarebytes? Change it to never register in action center.
