    Windows 10 PC stuck in restricted mode


    I had an old Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop running Vista and did not want to toss in the trash as it was lightly used.
    So I thought it would be useful for web browsing etc.

    I purchased a OEM key for Windows 10 Home from Kingquist (after reading an article in Tom's Hardware Guide that said it is legal and just surpluses).

    Did a clean install using the ISO method from a USG flash drive. No issues, Activated via Microsoft's phone activation line.

    Issue:

    A month later, I go to youtube to see a particular match of the Judo World Championships.

    I type in the search box, "tina trystenjak judo hansakumake"

    I get a message

    "Some results have been removed because Restricted Mode is enabled by your network administrator.
    FILTER"

    I am the admin of the laptop and there are no other user accounts on it.
    I got this error on Edge and then tried installing Chrome and turning off Restricted mode from that browser.
    However it had no effect.

    I read so many posts saying this is not fixed. It is not a youtube issue because another PC does not show the same message.

    Sorry but I don't think you read my post, "It is not a youtube issue because another PC does not show the same message."
    I logged in to youtube/Chrome from another PC and did not get the same issue.

    Instead of directing me to a google query of all posts that have had the same issue, I would appreciate it if you point me to the solution.

    By the way, I had tried turning it off and it does show restricted mode is OFF

    I still get the message

    "Some results have been removed because Restricted Mode is enabled by your network administrator.

    I tried again on my laptop just now and it works! The issue is gone.
    The only thing I did was, from another PC (the one that did not have this issue), I had modified the Microsoft account. Again, I did not do it with this in mind - I simply was trying to rename the C:\Users\username
    I dont know how this fixed things, but it is fixed :)
