Windows 7: Some settings are managed by your administrator

Some settings are managed by your administrator

The weird thing here is I'm the administrator and the only account of my laptop!

I'm trying to change some settings but to my surprise I found this

I have no other accounts in my laptop (I am connected to a network though, but I don't think that's the problem), and I am the Administrator. Please help me.

BTW, I might not be very active,

Hello Xeal, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using step 1 in OPTION ONE of the tutorial below may be able to enable changing Display and DPI settings again for you.
Display Settings - Enable or Disable
Afterwards, I would recommend to do a full scan of your system with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free just to help make sure that your system is clean if you didn't disable that setting by mistake.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks, it actually worked
I haven't tried the other program though, I'll try it later.
Thanks again!
