    Insider Preview Error

    I've been an Insider Previewer since it started and had no problems before now.
    Recently I've had a message on the Advanced Options section of the update page that my security settings are preventing the system from offering me downloads, and inviting me to click a button to 'Fix This'


    I click 'Confirm' and then am told to restart. I do, but nothing changes, I still get told I need to fix it.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Obviously it doesn't affect my normal use of the PC, but I want to continue as an Insider.

    Problem solved, but I have to wait at least 24 hours before I can test it.

    For the benefit of others, can you let us know what solved it and why you have to wait 24 hrs to test it ?

    Sorry. I thought it was obvious.
    I followed the advice in Sudo15's link in Post #2, the delay was what MS told me after restoring the ability to receive Insider updates on the Fast Ring.
    If you want to know why you'll have to ask them. Best of luck with that!

    My error on that, but thanks for the clarification.

    While I read an article to see if it gives the info required before posting if I don't have the answer myself, when I come back to the thread - I tend to forget what I've posted.

    Probably comes from working three forums and addressing the various problems (and age ).
