Hello ifyoulabme, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you logged in an administrator account?

If you are, then check the permissions of the hidden "C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\gpt.ini" file to make sure that "Administrators" are set to be allowed "Full control" of it, and that none of the "Deny" boxes are checked.

Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups

Hope this helps,
