    hi.
    If i go to start, then run, then tpye gpedit.msc it comes up with a group policy which can restricit users from say....restrict access to control panel. when i enable this restrcition it works but for all users including admin! how do i get around it so it only works for a particluar user
    i dont want to use any third part software like tweak manger or anything. i want to use the restrictions the gropu policy(gpedit.msc0 provide.
    has any one else tried this in xp pro and exprienced the restrictions applying to all users?
    plz reply back if you have any info on how to only restrict one user!

    basically, if you go run>gpedit.msc then you can prevent users from accessing control panel, and prob all sorts of other things...unfortunately, it prevents all users from accessing it...this guy wants to only stop the limited users from accessing it.

    No, he&#39;s trying to use group policy to place restrictions on users, but the gpedit
    doesn&#39;t do it by user or group,
    it applies all changes to all users.
