Windows 7: "Some settings are managed by your system administrator" Home Premium

"Some settings are managed by your system administrator" Home Premium

Thought I posted this on 7Forums already, I usually come here first...

I'm beginning to think that either my computer hates me or the System Restore Partition provided by Toshiba is corrupt. This will be the third or fourth time, I think, that I am reinstalling Windows. Each install has a different issue. It's been so long I don't even remember the first problem anymore.
The solutions posted by a user on MS Answers were sporadic in function. It took several reboots to get them to begin to work. They did not solve the problem, though. (If you're interested: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...=1341094846693)
So, this particular problem is that something has modified some policy and locked me out of changing my Power Plan. The current plan is high performance, but it's been modified to be really hi-po and very inefficient. I can't change any options to make do with this plan, either.

Been to a bunch of Windows forums looking for answers, nobody can solve it.

Allow me to demonstrate...
Thumbs uploaded here are out of order, look for file names or load from Tinypic.

Thanks.

Hello Steve,

You might use the tutorial below to see if there may have been a specified power plan set for all users. Using step 1 in OPTION ONE will allow you to make changes again if this is the case.

Power Plan - Specify a Default for All Users

Hope this may help,
Shawn

Umm...ok, then. The way I want to reply here would probably result in a ban, you may not understand my elation.

Let me try this, then:

Wow! Holy....How in the....did nobody at MS Answers solve this, never mind how quickly you did it, I simply mean solve it at all! The first download was the one:
1. To Allow Users to be able to Specify Their Own Power Plan
NOTE: This is the default setting.
A) Click on the Download button below to download the file below.
Allow_Users_to_Specify_their_own_Power_Plan.reg
So, umm, thanks again. Would you mind if I referenced this on the other Windows forums I've asked for a resolution on?
