Missing settings in Windows 10

 Share

Hi everyone, 

 

I've been trying to fix a laptop issue a friend of mine has been having and I'm completely stumped.

 

Most of the settings within windows 10 has disappeared. Creating a new user has the same issue, sfc /scannow doesn't flag anything up, cleaning the registry hasn't helped, I've also used cmd codes, powershell reinstalls, virus scans and nothing has worked.

 

I have been trying to find a away to get this working again without having to do a complete reinstall of windows. So in a last ditch attempt, I'm here.

 

Has anyone come across this issue before?

If so, what causes it and for the love of God, how do I fix it?!

 

Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

What you can do is an repair install of windows, this should keep all your files and might fix the issue

i have tried to do this however have not been able to get the laptop to accept or start a repair install from a USB. if you have a guide that i can follow, that would be great.

That looks like the type of behaviour I would expect if group policy had been applied to the machine.

when looking at the group policy editor, everything says that they are not configured. is there a certain setting that i need to be looking at and make sure it is enabled or disabled?

The link provided previously shows the specific settings to look for, however it was a longshot to look for that option but mentioned as it can replicate your issue precisely.

Did your friend purchase the laptop, or is it given to them by their work/school organization?

 

If it is on the organizations domain it is likely following their policies, and they don't want you to have those rights.
