Windows 7: Settings are managed by your administrator - PC was part of a Domain

Settings are managed by your administrator - PC was part of a Domain

This Dell Optiflex 390 W7 Pro 64 SP1 tower was not used for years, but now the owners want to use it. It was once part of a domain and NOBODY had a clue about any of the passwords. I used a Dell disk to get into the command prompt and reset the Administrator pswd. Then I logged onto that account and reset all the other account pswds. Then I removed the computer from the domain.

The problem is that the system needs to be updated and I'm getting the following screen no matter what admin account I sign on with.

I have gone through the options in the tutorial Windows Update - Enable or Disable Access - Windows 7 Help Forums but they've made no difference.

I put this in the general section since I'm sure this affects more than just the Windows Updates.

Because this computer was on a domain, let see what kind of license it has from Microsoft.

It might be looking for the domain server for updating.

windows 7 - Removing a computer from the domain - Server Fault

It is important that you have at least one account that is a local administrator and I would stop using the accounts that are domain accounts. You cannot perform these steps if you don't have access to an admin account. You can check the accounts using computer management. administrator is probably local but without a peek at users under computer management I couldn't tell you for sure. Right click on computer and click on manage. Expand local user's and then click on users. Post a screenshot. After completing the steps in the article right click on command prompt and select run as administrator. Type in gpupdate and hit enter.

If the group policy update was successful you will see this.

Quote:
C:\Windows\system32>gpupdate

User Policy update has completed successfully.
Computer Policy update has completed successfully.
Finally reboot the computer one more time.

Thanks for the reply. I believe I'd already successfully removed the PC from the domain. Included is a screen shot of the System screen along with the results of the 2 other suggestions. did not read the article since it would seem that the computer is no longer part of any domain, unless I'm missing something.

I did reboot after running gpupdate as an admin just to see if that command itself did anything. It did not - I get the same screen as in post #1.

Please post contents of the following registry keys including sub-keys so that we can check them:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU

If the AU subkey exists it's likely to be the problem as mentioned in the link in Post #3

Note   Note

NOTE: For 64-bit editions of Windows you also need to check following Registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows


Here is mine for comparison. There are no AU subkeys.

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]
"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate]

I was hoping that command would force windows to pull from local group policy rather than domain policy. From start menu type in gpedit.msc to open group policy editor. In the window that opens browse to computer configuration > administrative templates > Windows components > Windows update. Try setting all of those settings to not configured. Do the same thing for user configuration > administrative templates > Windows components > Windows update.
