    Or they may be due to be added in a later release. Brink's note for Option One does mention 'Fast build 19577 and higher'. They are definitely not in the current RTM 19041.331 build.

    True but, Brink note also mentions that it's in Windows 10 Slow build 19041.153 and higher. That is why I am asking why these checkmarks are missing if I am in build 19041.329.
    I removed the Slow ring reference for now to help avoid confusion between this Insider build vs public release.

    OK, thank you, Brink. I am not so confused anymore.

    I've been using Option 4 to enable PUA protection in v1909. I've just updated to v 2004 and see the option is turned off with the notice this setting is managed by your administrator. How do I get rid of this?

    Simple, undo the registry settings you used back in 1909 and set them back to Default. From my post #64....

    If you have previously enabled PUA detection then, as Brink says in Option Four, after upgrading to version 2004 you may find that Option One's 'Potentially unwanted app blocking' switch is ON but greyed out, with a 'This setting is managed by your administrator' message above it.

    If so then I can confirm that Option Four's Default_allow_set_Windows_Defender_PUA_in_Windows_Security.reg will remove the message and enable the switch.

    That's step 5 in Option Four.

    That's step 5 in Option Four.
    That worked!

    I believe that the screenshot in the first post needs to be moved up a slot, since it shows the instructions on how to disable PUA, but it is shown under the Default Allow to Change Microsoft Defender PUA Settings in Windows Security section.

    Hey mate,

    The screenshot under step 8 of option 3 is just an example to show all the available settings.
