Can anyone help as to where I details would be found that would stop the user doing a refresh or full factory reset?  By this I mean in such circumstances as a company computer, for example would not allow the image to be changed to the vanilla out of the box version, but would allow a reset to its own base build issue. Assuming it was not locked down to stop it altogether in the first place. 

Thanks in advance

You can not change a Windows 10 Enterprise Edition to a Home Edition. Many businesses buy a particular license that has certain features and you can not change from one Edition to another.

Now on a previous thread you asked me about whether I was running an enterprise version because I was getting lots of

To confirm I bought this SP4 from a department store who bought it from Microsoft. The store do not so much as open the box before sending it out to the purchaser. However when the MS global escalation team were looking at another issue they queried the fact that having AAOEM in licence ( I would have to check on that to be absolutely sure thats what was said but does that make any sense to you?)
