    Hi Dalchina, thanks for all your help so far, I don't know what is causing this. I have just redone options 2,3 again, still no change. If I understand correctly option 4 is about disabling telemetry completely, the opposite of what I need to do. However perhaps if I do as option 4 suggests then restart and re enable the settings mentioned in option 4 maybe it will change something - do you think I must try that?

    One person has just discovered that if they change their account from ordinary user to admin, log out, log in, this works.

    So you could try that idea, ensuring you keep a different user account as admin.

    Presumably you've also tried changing from tablet mode (full screen) to normal.

    I don't know how to proceed, I am the only user on my laptop, naturally I have an administor account, in the past I've tried creating a new account because of a possible corrupted account, it didn't help then. I can try it again, make a new account, make it a normal user account and then convert it to an administration account. This problem is really getting me down. Seems to me that something is needed to re write the permissions one has and gives (to Microsoft and your computer) to eliminate this problem.

    Before deleting anything, I recommend backing up the registry (or at least specified keys), just in case.

    To reset telemetry, simply delete those:

    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\DataCollection" /v "AllowTelemetry" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WINEVT\Channels\Microsoft-Windows-Application-Experience/Program-Telemetry" /v "Enabled" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection" /v "AllowTelemetry" /f

    To reset everything else, delete those:

    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsStore\WindowsUpdate" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\Applicability" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows" /f

    As for Windows Update, that one is a bit peculiar, I am trying to figure it out by myself.

    Thanks TairikuOkami, I'm new to registry stuff, how do I go about this, also I trust I managed to backup the registry in the correct way - I opened regedit. Put the highlight bar on computer an chose export from the menu, the file is about 343mb and I saved it on the desktop.

    I think I have solved it - need to do a few restarts and things to see if the problem stays fixed. I as reading a post on this forum about not being able to stop windows 10 installing device drivers and the person was chatting to BRINK, one of his suggestions as that a group policy may be enabled and that is hat is preventing the user changing a certain setting. I decided to check my group policies, since they are all supposed to read not configured as the default. While going trough mine I discovered that the group policy for local computer/computer configuration/administration templates/all settings/start layout was set to enabled, I changed it to not configured because I have never changed anything in gpedit.msc. But my problem of the setting/advanced (described above) still occurs, it is like whenever i open regedit - it automatically changes from 3 to 0 - very mystifying. Well I changed it back to 3 but it worries me because sometimes (in the past) a reboot would change the value of this key as well.
