    Current status (2016/09/16): we were able to reproduce this problem on a certain computer and we are still looking into it.
  • If you remove some registry policies (such as AutoUploadAnySize), they are not always reverted to their default values.
    Current status (2016/09/16): We have fix for this problem but it's not yet available for stable release. This problem does not appear if you do not remove registry policies (rather than that, revert such policies by setting their opposite value).
