    Windows Update-Some Settings are Managed by Your Organization


    Hello. Okay I am sure this has been discussed but the fixes I see from a search concern gpedit command which no longer works. Does anyone know the solution to this issue as I am a home user. Have network on private. In system properties under computer name it says "Workgroup: WORKGROUP" and although it says you can change the workgroup name I am unable to.

    Regarding the message as something that needs to be fixed is misleading. It's not an error message.

    It simply indicates that a registry change has been made that (in Pro upwards) could be made by means of the Group Policy Editor- e.g. by merging a reg file or using some 3rd party tool or script.

    Have you made changes to modify how Windows Update works?

    If you see below it a link
    View configured update policies
    click that and it will tell you more.

    (I don't know if that link is made available in Home)

    Thank you for letting me know that it is not an error message or that my computer is not being run by some rogue group. I do use ccleaner to clean the registry (is this okay?) that is the only thing I can think that touched it.

    View configured update policies is not there for Home. I selected the option "give me updates for other MS products" but that is it for making changes to how Update works. So still a bit stumped. When a registry change is made why would that trigger this message to start appearing? I realize it probably is not something I need to worry about but is it possible to get rid of it?

    You seem very knowledgeable so if I may ask you another completely different question:

    I updated the other day to build 17134.228 and now when my pc boots the brand name comes up, then the screen flashes off and on and the brand name is back up again and normal boot resumes. Very concerning.

    Ccleaner is regarded as one of the safer registry cleaners, but we generally view registry cleaning as ill-advised, unnecessary, having no benefit, and risky.

    Tools such as Revo and Geek Uninstaller are very good if used to uninstall programs- many leave leftovers. Depends on the author as to how thorough a given uninstaller is.

    When a registry change is made why would that trigger this message to start appearing?
    If a registry key that, in Pro upwards would be changed by (an IT admin) applying a group policy, has been changed, that's when the informative but, for Home users, badly worded message is presented.

    Occasionally it has appeared for some after applying certain builds or updates. So-called 'privacy' tools might give rise to it. And there are many many posted hacks that could.

    If the PC boots normally and in the same time, I wouldn't worry. If the boot has slowed, some have experienced that in 1803.

    Thank you for the advice on registry cleaning. What about all that garbage it finds though? Such as "invalid ActiveX control" or pieces of old software that are off the PC? Such small things, a few kb's, that they aren't worth causing bigger issues and aren't affecting performance or causing conflicts?

    Okay so using Ccleaner would not trigger the message. I don't see any 3rd party tools that could affect a registry change, not sure what to be looking for. Haven't run any scripts (aside from a few in Similarity). I know it is not some huge "danger" for the message to be there but I do not like that my registry was altered and I don't know what or how.

    PC is booting normally and I actually just recalled that I also had recently installed an updated Nvidia driver (grudgingly) so I am thinking that very well could be the issue there.

    pieces of old software that are off the PC?
    - I mentioned two programs good to deal with that.
    I routinely use Geek uninstaller- it runs the normal uninstaller then scans for leftovers so you can choose what to do.

    So your registry has a few 1000 redundant keys. It doesn't matter.

    About the only case where that's a problem is e.g. where uninstalling an AV program leaves traces, detected by some other program which will not then install.

    So do you think Ccleaner triggered that message? I guess not since it isn't changing registry keys just deleting.

    What kinds of things would cause a registry key change? I see what you mean in saying it is not an error message but I'd love to know the root cause.

    Hi, I've indicated that certain 3rd party tools could do that- but you say you've not used any. There are plenty of reg files - including some in tenforums tutorials - that could. And users editing the registry could.

    And I've mentioned that rarely it just happens in the context of a very few upgrades or updates.

    Unless you know the relevant registry change and could then link that to your PC's history, impossible to say.

    If the message is only showing after downloading a Windows update then the message is indicating that you have active hours set; the message will disappear when you restart the PC.

    Yes it does only appear after a big update is dl'ed before a restart. I guess for Home users this is sort of a bug, or like dalchina said is very poorly worded. I don't see how to "unset" active hours. They are default 8-5 but if I try just removing them I cannot.

    Thank you dalchina that eases my mind and clears things up. Just to be completely clear, ccleaner is not the culprit here?

    Well, that puts that to bed. At least I know that this is common although I'd love to know the root.

    What would a user use a reg file from tenforums tutorials for?
