    Some settings are hidden or managed by your..., can't get rid of it...


    Whatever I do, I just can't get rid of that infuriating red sentence (Some settings are hidden or managed by your organization) that is above my privacy settings in Windows 10. I tried every trick in the book and well... it won't leave the options page...

    Help me out because I'm out of options!

    Hi There,
    Sometimes helps if you can detail out what you have tried so any advice given is not replicating your efforts so far.

    This is message is normally shown when you are connected to a Domain, group policy is enforced or registry settings have been modified by Manual Advanced tools or 3rd party installations.

    I tried to set the diagnostic feedback to full. Didn't work.
    I tried to set the group policy to receive telemetry (the on and off trick). Did not work.
    I tried to set PushNotifications in the registry to on. Did not work.

    In short: all the tricks that WOULD work... doesn't!

    Even the given link does not work. All I know it's because some update did something obviously.... Right after the install all the hubbub began!

    Where are you seeing that? I have seen the same message in Windows Update (fixed) but also when wanting to delete history and cookies in Edge browser. I fixed that one by restoring a registry backup. It's easier than tracking down the cause sometimes.

    Well, you may require a clean install. that message is related to changes made in your Registry by someone or some program. I know full well why I have the same as since the last clean install I have made many settings changes using GPEDTI, REGEDIT, and I use Classic Shell which also makes some registry settings. Personally I since I am aware of the reason I don't concern myself about it. Any update your not getting through WU you can go get from the WU Catalog and manually install them yourself which is the main reason I made the Registry changes in the first place. I like to be in control of updates or upgrades to my computers myself. I pay attention and if there are problems with a particular update it gets a post here pretty quickly that gives me time to prepare or prevent until the fix comes through.
    I also use a Gaming notebook it does not like windows generic drivers so I have them blocked and they will stay that way so I will always have that red line notice Some settings are managed by your organization.

    In the PRIVACY section and WINDOWS INSIDER section of Settings. When the last update was installed I also got it shortly after installing but after checking for other updates it went away. But these two stayed...

    Seems I'm not the only one... Reddit has the same issues... May Windows 10 Cumulative Updates are out! KB4103721 (1803), KB4103727 (1709), KB4103731 (1703), KB4103723 (1607), KB4103728 (1511), KB4103716 (RTM). : Windows10

    I've been thinking, I used MBAM for a while but I deinstalled it afterwards. Could THAT be the culprit?

    So what do you show for "Viewed Configured Update Policies" ? in Windows Update settings. It should tell you what was changed that is causing the message !
