    If you change the feedback to MS to "None" it will not work. If you change it back to "Automatic" or "Full" then you are OK.

    If you run some little script to stop MS "spying" on you then your "insider" status will be invalidated. As an insider you agree to MS "spying" on you. That is the deal. Specifically sending them (the limited) information you agreed to when you signed up.

    I changed the feedback to full but it makes no difference to the red message.

    Well I am not an 'insider' but a normal Win10 user. Not sure why you put the word "spying" in full quotes as though they are not really spying on us. Because they REALLY are spying on us. To suggest otherwise comes across as rather disengenuous. There are 3 pages of spying options that one has to uncheck to stop Microsoft taking all manner of information from our computers. It is pretty outrageous that they added all this spyware in Windows 10. And I am not an anti-microsoft user at all. I don't write MS as 'M$' but I do think these spying options should not be activated as default at install time. Personal information is the latest money-making craze in the commercial world and Microsoft seem to have bought into this rubbish. A few years ago Google streeview were shamed for recording all WiFi information that was password-unprotected. They had no reason to do this and the only people who would find such details of use are hackers and dubious types. But they created a massive database of UK non-passworded personal WiFis anyway. Microsoft are bordering on this sort of dubious behaviour with all these information gathering options. If they were put onto your PC via a website or third-party app you'd rightly call them trojans and virues. imho.

    So I hope Microsoft will see sense and realise that privacy is going to be an important commodity in the 21st century.

    Detailed discussion here, including possible registry fix (actually the policy setting) and language settings.

    Cortana is disabled by company policy?

    Note this is around August...

    And here are the group policy instructions: (Group policy editor is not available to home users)

    • Search and open gpedit.msc
    • Locate Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Search
    • Scroll down to Search and find "Allow Cortana". Right-click to "Edit"
    • Disable
    • Search the Command Prompt with elevated privileges by right-clicking and "Run as Administrator"
    • Execute gpupdate /force in the Command Prompt.
    • Go to Task Manager and end the "Cortana" task.
    • Cortana is disabled as a matter of company policy and will not run in the background, even when disabled.


    - so here's the short registry equivalent
    For Home Edition users that may not have Group Policy editor you can do this via the following registry key:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search
    Value: AllowCortana
    Change to 0 to Disable Cortana, 1 to Enable.

    You may have to reboot for it to take effect.

    Hi there
    I got issue at customer where no-one can change the "set time automatically"feature to be disabled on Win 10 1511.If they change dates it jumps back by itself.Does anyone know how to disable this from happening if it says "Some settings are managed by your organisation "and greyed out

    I need maybe the gpedit steps to do this or registry key to change.It never happened to Win 7 pc's in domain.I did try changing group policy in domain server but still the same
