    This is not a defautl behaveier.
    Is this your OWN pc? If it is an office pc of your employer the sysadmin might disallowed it through a policy.

    If it is your pc at home you most likly followed some obscure howto which promised you a more save Windows written by some paranoid privacy nutt. Simply disable this advanced policy setting.

    It's my own PC and nothing has been done with system other than installing drivers and upgrade from 10166 so i that is my last so called upgrade.
    Everytime i upgraded some weird issues came up. And everytime i did a fresh install none off these weird issues happened.:eek::eek::eek::eek:
