Desktop Gadgets Are Managed By Your System Administrator (Fixed)
It may happen that you are the Administrator of your PC, yet when you try to use your desktop gadgets you receive this error message, that “Desktop Gadgets Are Managed By Your System Administrator”.
To solve this problem, open Regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Policies. Right-click Policies, select New > Key, and give to your new key the name Windows.
Right-click Windows, select New > Key, and give to your new key the name Sidebar. Right-click Sidebar, select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value, and give to your new value the name TurnOffSidebar.
Right-click TurnOffSidebar to set Value data to 0. In case that the TurnOffSidebar value already exists, check if its data is 1 and change it to 0.
Restart and (most probably) enjoy!
If this registry setting is not enough and you still receive the error message that “Desktop Gadgets Are Managed By Your System Administrator”, open your Notepad and paste the lines below, then save the file as something.reg and run it to update the registry. Restart and (let’s hope this time) enjoy your gadgets!
