    Group Policy on home machine?!?!?!?!?


    Ok,

    I have a gaming machine at home that was running W7. I upgraded to W10. It went from W7 Ultimate to W10 Pro, which is fine. Not long after that, I ran into some issues that I was unable to correct, sfc /scannow was failing, and I couldn't get DISM to read the source files correctly to execute a repair.

    So, after doing some searching, I found this article:

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    This was successful, and I thought I was on my merry way. Then after I was using it for a few minutes, it came up with a message that I didn't have an AV running. So, it pointed me to the AV control panel, but everything was greyed out. Then I went into update, and got the notorious "Some system settings are managed by your organization."

    I'm quite sure this is a group policy issue, but I'm confused as to why it just decided to clamp down on group policy when this machine isn't in a domain (it's in a workgroup). I then found some instructions that said to delete the GP directories and do "gpupdate /force". That didn't work either.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Hi,

    Had the same issue on a number of occasions. This is what solved it for me:


    Steps to fix 'Some settings are managed by your organization' message in Windows 10
    Make sure you have administrator rights and follow the steps below:

    Step 1: Launch Run prompt by right clicking the Windows Start menu icon. Type in gpedit.msc and click OK or Enter.
    Step 2: In Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc), go to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Data Collection and Preview Builds.
    Step 3: Find the Allow Telemetry item and double-click it to edit the policies.
    Step 4: Change the setting to Enabled. Change the drop-down menu entry to 3-Full and click Apply.
    Step 5: Now open the item again and change its Setting to Not configured and hit the Save button.
    The message should no longer stop you from accessing various system settings in Windows 10.

    Cheers,

    I already saw that solution and tried it. It doesn't seem to work. Any other ideas?

    Hi, try:
    "Settings" -> "Privacy" -> "Feedback & diagnostics" -> "Diagnostics and usage data".
    If it is set to "Basic", change it to "Enhanced" or higher.
    Hopefully the message "Some settings are managed by your organization" disappears.

    ..if you still have the problem, try O&O Shutup (freeware) and use the drop-down 'Undo all changes ("factory settings") from Action.
