Dual Boot: Windows 8.1 & Server 2012r2 VMs: Kali Linux, Backbox, Matriux, Windows 8.1

If you don't remember setting policies this can happen due to malware. I would run a malwarebytes at a minimum.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

Here is more information and instructions on how to re-enable it.
SUPERAntiSpyware FAQ - I receive the error message "The System Administrator has set policies to prevent this installation"
