How do I disable group policies in Windows 7?
Question by Don Blevens /

I installed Windows Tweaker 4.0 and now I can no longer change my Windows 7 settings, e.g. icon notifications. It says my admin changed the group policies so I can no longer do this. I AM the admin, this is a home PC.

I see a ‘Group Policy Client’ running on my PC but can not disable it. I have Windows 7 Home so I do not have the Group Policy Manager on my PC. Does anybody know how to undo this so I can control my PC again?

I even did a restore to before installing Windows Tweaker but it didn’t help. Windows Tweaker is gone but the ‘policy’ is still in place.
