  2. GPEDIT is completely ineffective in Win10 PRO

    Hi joeyberger,

    Sorry for the delay in response

    What specific setting did you change in gpedit?

    Do you face the issue only with gpedit?

    We suggest you to run this command and check.

    • Press Win + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Command Prompt(Admin)
    • Type sfc /scannow
    • After the SFC scan, Type or copy, paste the command in the command prompt
      DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and hit Enter.
    • Restart the computer and check.
    Thank you.

  3. gpedit crashes with error "found an error in a snap-in"

    Hi,

    Thank you for responding in Microsoft Community.

    As you are facing issue with gpedit, this issue might happens due to missing or corrupted system files.

    Step 1: I suggest you to run SFC scan and check if it helps.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    • Press Windows + R keys, to open
      Run command.
    • Type cmd and hit Enter to open
      Command Prompt.
    • Type the command "sfc /scannow" without the quotes
      and hit Enter.
    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Step 2: If the issue still persists, I suggest you to perform clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict and check.

    Disclaimer: Putting your system in
    Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.

    Gpedit problem

    I just repair installed win 10 32 1607. Some things were messed up but I've been able to correct most. However I saw a recent post on how to remove Cortana. https://www.tenforums.com/general-sup...e-cortana.html. One suggestion was to use gpedit. But when I started gpedit,msc I got the attached message
    The program ran after I dismissed the message twice but did not display the needed choices. I took a shot at editing the referenced file but couldn't save it because it's in Windows directory and is protected. (I am the Administrator). How can I fix gpedit?
