    Hello Taffy,

    That message in Windows Update is a common issue lately.

    You can use this tutorial to find those two configured group policies, and then set them back to their default "Not Configured" setting to hopefully stop the message in Windows Update.

    Hi again Brink. I fell at the first hurdle, unfortunately - Windows "cannot find gpedit.msc" per snip. I'd rather not try the other route yet until I see what you suggest re this one. Thanks.

    .... I clicked 'View configured update policies' and there are two entries: 'Set Active Hours Start' and 'Set Active Hours End'...

    The 'Catch 22' is that you won't find them, not if you've restarted and completed the install of the updates. They only seem to exist while you are pending a restart. Also, they are not Group Policies, they are Mobile Device Management policies, so you may not find them in group policies even when they are in place.

    Your signature says it all - "Win10 (HOME) v1803". Gpedit is not available in Home, neither is rsop.msc.

    Taffy,

    You can safely ignore the message in Windows Update, and wait until the next build.

    I've just updated my man laptop with the (unexpected) WU. Got the 'managed by an organisation' message on that too.

    On both my laptops I've opened the link to View configured update policies and both are the same - the two messages relate to Set Active hours (Start and Stop) Both have 10am start and 6pm stop. I'll just ignore shall I? Although if there is a known bug would you have time to mention it https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...1-ad836decfb41? This will help Don and others there point users in the right direct ion.

    PS A quick question: how do I unsubscribe from a thread please? It's win 7 and I have win10. Cheers

    Yes. Ignore it.

    I'm of the opinion it's not a 'bug' as such, but rather an intentional (but highly confusing) 'feature'. It just serves as a reminder that until you have restarted then 'active hours' are in force. Once the update is installed it goes away.

    Hi Shawn, have you considered using the Filter Options to limit the list to configured policies? E.g.
    Rt click e.g. Administrative templates, Filter option, set Filter Options - Configured, Yes; rt click Filter On
