Execution Policy Change
The execution policy helps protect you from scripts that you do not trust. Changing the execution
policy might expose you to the security risks described in the about_Execution_Policies help
topic at about Execution Policies - PowerShell | Microsoft Docs. Do you want to change the execution

Set-ExecutionPolicy : Windows PowerShell updated your execution policy successfully, but the setting is overridden by a policy defined at a more specific scope. Due to the
override, your shell will retain its current effective execution policy of AllSigned. Type “Get-ExecutionPolicy -List” to view your execution policy settings. For more information

Do you have any GPO that is overriding the setting?


Hello Alexander,

Thanks for the reply.

I don’t have any GPO for this. Am trying it in my local machine witch don’t have any GPO.

If you start a new shell and type the following:

Get-ExecutionPolicy -List

What does it return?

Also, make sure you are running the

with elevated privileges.
