    I’m on Windows 10 Pro (64-bit). This “solution” did not work.

    I did not reboot my PC. Maybe I have to do that for the fix to take effect? At this point I don’t want to reboot; too much going on.

    I cannot seem to get rid of this message no matter what I do

    What if you do not have “Data Collection and Preview Builds” in your policies? That whole category is missing.

      Then you don’t have Windows 10 Pro. Give up and cry. Heck, I have Windows 10 Pro and this didn’t work.

      EDIT: It partially worked. It just doesn’t get rid of the message everywhere, just in Feedback and Diagnostics.
