I have an unusual situation the I would like to run by the group on this forum.
I have Windows 8.1 Pro running on a 64-bit machine. The machine had Windows 8 loaded when I bought it last year and then I upped it to Win 8.1 when it was released. I recently went through the process of disabling the Lock Screen through the Group Policy editor and also verified that the associated Registry Key has the correct value. I then rebooted the computer. By the way, these instructions came from Microsoft and are posted on their support site.
The problem is the lock screen is still active and I have to enter a password as was the case before I made these changes. Does anyone has any thoughts on what's going on in this situation? Why did the changes not take effect?
Any guidance will be appreciated.
