Personal computer shows administrator controls options for bitlocker, but work account removed from system. How do I remove this?

Gary L 0 Reputation points

My personal computer is showing a message "For your security, some settings are managed by your system administrator." in Settings - Bitlocker Drive Encryption.

This computer was sometimes used to access my work account, but that account has since been removed.

The computer is currently enrolled in the Microsoft Insider Beta program.

No one else should have permissions on my personal computer. How do I remove the extraneous administrator permissions?

    Use the Local Group Policy Editor to disable the administrator privileges. Here are some steps you can try:

    • Press Windows and R keys, then type in the text box and press Enter key to open the Local Group Policy Editor.gpedit.msc
    • In the Local Group Policy Editor, click Computer Configuration - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies - Security Options.
    • In the right pane, find the policy named “Accounts: Administrator account status” and double-click on it. In the pop-up window, select Disabled and click OK to save the changes.
    • Restart your personal computer and check if the message is gone.

    Best Regards,
