    Hello Strax, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Yes, you could do the same thing since it appears you have a Windows Update policy enabled.

    You would just need to download the .reg file, double click on the .reg file to merge it, approve the prompt to approve the merge, and restart the computer to apply.

    After googling a while, I found this thread.
    Of course I had to register with EightForums to download the registry patch.
    & you know what? I'm glad I did. The patch worked flawlessly and I think I might just browse the rest of this website for some more useful information.

    The reg file worked in win 10 to un-grey the buttons allowing me to change everything, so that's a partial fix, but it still didn't get rid of the remark atop the advanced section that states, " Some settings are managed by your organization " after I rebooted. What do I do?
