    Thanks Shawn I had to use the download in option 1 as the stuff in Option 2 I could not make head nor tail of as whatever I did nothing came up looking anything like what was in the tutorial that related to Local Group Policy.
    So if I do and there is a probably never chance of that I use the other download to enable the pop up? It is probably one of the most annoying features of Windows and why it is included is a complete mystery to me.

    But hopefully it is gone now.
