Default mmc panel

You know I am not sure about home edition, but in Pro you can go to Start>run and type in "mmc" Microsoft management Console.

Then once you are in you click on "File>Add/Remove Snap-in" then "Add" Then you look for "Group Policy" and add, Finish, Close, OK.

This lets you manipulate local policies on the PC. Again this is a Windows XP PRO and 2000 thing. I am not sure if Home has the same settings.

Well Duh! Cniv I just saw your post -- where did that come from? It wasn't there when I first read -- heh.

Okay, pls disregard my last post -- it is clearly NOT available on Home Edition. So 97lt2959 I reccomend getting Pro if you want advanced secirity options.
