Restore popup message to install drivers

When installing a network printer, the user is presented with a dialog box "Do you trust this printer?" when the driver needs to be installed or updated (sample is attached).

At some point I checked the lower left checkbox to "Don't show this again".

I would like to re-enable this popup message on one pc for troubleshooting purposes.

There is no group policy (network or local) that is enabled.  I leave it up to the user to check the box.

Is there a registry setting that controls this dialog box?

This can be tough.  It may depend on the particular popup.

If none of those suggestions help (including running SFC /SCANNOW), you could try a Repair Install.

It should not affect personal data or installed programs, but it never hurts to backup first.

If this started fairly recently you could try a System Restore.
