  • Local Group Policy

    Why is it that when you apply a policy to a local user, the administrator is not affected? I wanted to know that. So say I enable "remove run from start menu", then do the whole thing with c:\windows\system32\grouppolicy\registry\, then I check that the admin has it, but not the local user on my box. How and why is that possible? Thank You. Can someone just give me a rundown why that is.

    Which OS is this? Windows 7 has changed the rules so has multiple local policies.
    Is it in a domain? If so, any domain policies will beat local (using LSDOu to define the processing order)

      It is windows 7. Why is the admin not affected in a group policy? Why is the admin ommitted from any type of policy?
