  1. Sandbox - Missing Group Policy & Registry Keys


    I'm testing Windows Sandbox on my Dell XPS 9560. It mostly works, but the vGPU enable option would crash Sandbox, so I tried to inspect my settings, and found I don't HAVE any settings! What the....? In Group Policy (gpedit.msc), there is no Windows Sandbox folder in Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components. My other PC's have it. Also, the corresponding Registry keys are missing.

    I did figure out that having VT-D enabled in BIOS would cause Sandbox to crash, so I shut it off, but the vGPU enable now does nothing. The Sandbox sessions are using WDDM 1.3, which is definitely not good enough, and the Render tab in DXDIAG is missing, meaning no vGPU was detected when Sandbox spun up.

    Does anyone know how to fix this? Looking for a bit more than the standard DISM and SFC ideas, tried that already.

  2. Windows Defender Group Policy Disabeled

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    As you have stated you want to disable the group policy so that you can run windows defender on the computer.

    I would like to suggest few troubleshooting steps:

    Method 1: Disable group policy from gpedit.msc


    • Press Windows key + R.

    • Type gpedit.msc and click Ok.(it will open Local Group policy editor)

    • Go to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Windows Defender.

    • In the right pane of
      Windows Defender
      in Local Group Policy Editor, double click/tap on the
      Turn off Windows Defender
      policy to edit it.

    • Select (dot) Not Configured or
      Disabled, click/tap on OK,

    • When finished, you can close the Local Group Policy Editor if you like.
    If the issue still persist you can follow method 2.

    Method 2: Disable group policy from registry.

    Important: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow
    these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the
    article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756


    • Press Window Key +R.

    • Type regedit and click. (it will open registry)

    • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender

    • Right Click on Window Defender to create a new Dword.

    • Click on New and Select Dword.

    • Type DisableAntiSpyware.

    • Right click on DisableAntiSpyware and click on modify.

    • Set the value to 0 instead of 1.

    Hope this information is helpful. If the issue still persists, you can write back to us and we will be glad to assist you further.

    Sandbox - Missing Group Policy & Registry Keys

    Administrative template missing in group policy editor.

    I have Windows 10 version 1909 (OS Build 18363.1171).I want to speed up the loading of thumbnails in the file explorer for pdf files. I went to this article and it lists the steps that involve editing the group policy. https://www.guidingtech.com/speed-up-thumbnail-loading-windows-10/


    Unfortunately, I am not getting the administrative template in my group policy editor and cannot proceed.
