    Default Settings for registry key - can anyone take a look


    Hi whilst working on a recent device set-up issue on Windows 8 - I have noticed some discrepancies on some of OS's in the registry and wondered if some of you could be kind enough to take a peek at your registry on Windows 8 and confirm a default Binary for me please:


    Thanks so much
    HKEY LOCAL MACHINE
    SOFTWARE
    MICROSOFT
    WINDOWS
    CURRENT VERSION
    DEVICE METADATA

    Next to last item in tree: Prevent Device Metadata from Network - Binary Value does it read 0 or 1? If have conflicting issues here and someone with an unamended registry can perhaps tell me the default value please? This will assist me greatly - As I see different values on my Laptops I am now unsure of the default
