    Bree,

    Sorry, your guess was incorrect it's not that thread you have referenced that worked for device 3 for me,it was simply deleting the MRT references from my laptop's registry specifically under

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Safer

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Window


    Hope this helps , it's desktop Device 4 (where the entries above don't exist) that I'm drawing a blank on.

    I do not have any MRT references in these paths.

    I have an identical problem.

    Any ideas? I don't have these registry entries. I am on the latest-greatest 1903.

    Two other ways to solve the Microsoft Removal Tool (MRT) issue:

    > Copy MRT.exe from C:\Windows\System32 to your desktop and run it from there (as Admin)

    > Use the nifty utility from Sysinternals called psexec.exe https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sys...wnloads/psexec
    You can create a small .cmd batch file containing the following line (or run at from an admin command prompt):

    psexec.exe -s -i mrt.exe

    The MRT.exe file will then be executed as you were logged as 'System', an account even more powerful than Admin

    Enjoy!
