  • IE 11.x and the "Some settings are managed by the system administrator." message

    Hi
    I have a computer with Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 with IE 11.x and no Firewall/Antivirus softwares.

    In each user account, in the Advanced tab of the "Properties - Internet" window, a yellow stripe is displayed with the "Some settings are managed by the system administrator." message. Why?

    How should I do to eliminate this kind of block?
    Thanks
    Bye

    Do exactly what the message suggests:

    Go to your System Administrator - bearing gifts as appropriate
    Ask them to PLEASE alter group policies to remove the managed settings
    (Note that you should also have a business case to change group policies as there were presumably reasons why they were set up in the first place)
    If the Systems administrator decides to alter the policies, wait for the changes to apply (typically after a reboot)
    Thank your system administrator nicely, again bearing appropriate gifts

    Thanks
    Bye

      I would also suggest you ask the System Administrator to install antivirus software. What sort of idiot would leave a computer without any virus defence. Unbelievable.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.

        Given the OP, I presume that was a rhetorical question?

        I missed earlier that it was Windows Home Premium therefore can't be in a domain - check local policy instead of domain GPOs, remembering Win7 can have multiple local policies. First find out why the local policy was implemented and as above make the business case for the change

          In each user account, This yellow strip is located in the bottom of the Advanced tab in the "Properties - Internet" window:

          http://i60.tinypic.com/fthmhx.jpg

          This computer does not belong to a domain and Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 is without Group Policies Editor.

          Thanks

            Yes, if you had read the later post, that has already been noted.

            You will obviously need to install the Group Policy EDITOR to look into policies - the policy settings can be defined without the editor, by directly working with the registry. Instructions on how to install the editor are readily available on the internet.

            Alternatively, you can remove the offending settings by running an administrative cmd prompt and entering "format c: /q /x". This is at your own risk and potential side effects should be researched first.

            Thanks
