Can't find Local Security Policy

Q: Can't find Local Security Policy

I need to change some settings in the Local Security Policy but when I go into Control Panel-->Administrative tools, it is not there. Does anybody have an idea of where else Local Security Policy would be? Is there a Run command I could enter?
I am running Windows XP Home SP2.
Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Can't find Local Security Policy

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator.

Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it?

Much thanks.

A:Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy

I take it that you want to restrict access to this drive to everyone but yourself. Which drive are you referring to, is it locally connected or via a network?

I have been trying to open the Local Group Policy editor as I need to check the "Lock pages in memory" option in order for a PS2 emulator to work.

I can find the file when searching in my computer but when I open it it says it cannot create the MMC span-in. I have tried to add it to the MMC by clicking on file and Add/Remove snap-in, but when that box opens the 'Group Policy Object Editor' doesnt exist on the list of items.

I am really confused and cant work out why it doesnt seem to exist or work on my computer.

I'll precede my question by stating that I had a couple viruses that I believe are gone now, the problems I am having may be remnants of them. First problem was with Office install, there was a restriction on a registry key, I was able to get the permissions back for the key and installed successfully. Now I am trying to update to Windows Media Player 11, and am getting an error code C00D2AFB also 80070005 General access denied error. Which I think may be another restriction problem. Have had no problems with any other software vendors other than Microsoft. Also I don't know if this is odd but, under administrative tools there is NO Local Security Policy listed there, but this is XP Sp2 Home, I don't know if that is only for professional. How can I get it back, and restore all policies to default?

You can disable the changing of the option to view hidden files or folders for all users except Administrators.
Also if you can disable the searching of hidden files or filders for all users except Administrators.

Is there a script anywhere or registry editing?

Plus what settings in there would you disable for most users, can you disable CMD?

Hello to BC
Due to our forum rules we really cannot help you do what you want to do. Your admin probably implemented it as a security feature to prevent bad software from being installed on the machines, I would go ask him if you need to install something.
Per this forum rules:"No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user.

Hi,

My local security policy on my Win 7 Pro x64 machine is only showing a limited set of policies (see below). I need to modify "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level" in order to remotely connect to my PC at work. But that policy does not appear in my local security policy. I have tried the following:

1. using "Security Compliance Manager" and "Local GPO" to install the default set of policies.
2. adding "LmCompatibilityLevel" registry key set to "1", see: LmCompatibilityLevel.
3. at least three "sfc /scannow" followed by restarting.

with no luck. Would appreciate your insights. ced

Try the search here:

Use the filter and tree views to find out how to apply the required settings either via Local Security Policy or via the registry if the LSP setting is not available on your machine.

As for LMCompatibility Level - I had the same issue and manually created the required registry key. I ran the software mentioned in the following link on another forum.

A:Backup/Import Local Security Policy?

Technically local security policy is by definition "local" to that machine. You can try copying the contents of one machines' LGPO contents to another, but this isn't always going to work. I guess the question is, are all of the settings you are modifying in the local GPO policy? If so, they're all just registry settings, so figuring out which registry value each policy changes and to what data you'd like the value set means you can really do this with a .reg import of the settings. Unless you're modifying things like adding certificates or setting service configuration (both of which can be scripted using other tools, btw), anything in the Administrative tools section (and a lot of things in the other sections) are just registry values.

Norton/Symantec, in its ever-ibimitable wisdom installs its Internet Security and Utilities packages into a locked folder(s). By locked I mean that one CANNOT modify (Rename, Delete, etc) the installed folder(s) and any of its sub-objects. I AM an administrator user, so I SHOULD (expect to) have such ability. Rather, I am issued Access Denied errors when attempting any form of modification of the folder(s) and/or its sub-objects. When attempting to change access security on the folder (modifying Administrator's access rules) I am again denied access...stupid. Can't get there from here!!!!

What does one do to overcome this most annoying impediment? I'm assuming that it would be through acces of the Local Security Policy function.

Probably some negative comment is due Microsoft for its clumsy implementation of security and the difficulty(s) trying to manage it, resulting in utter frustration.

Thanks in advance.

A:Can I change local security policy entries from RegEdit?

Hi again,

So I've found that default software policy rules should look like this:





%HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRoot%,Path,Unrestricted,
%HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProgramFilesDir%,Path,Unrestricted



and might be located in the registry here?






Software restriction policies are stored in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Safer or in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows.



Is anyone able to confirm what a default / working set of registry values should be set to please?

Thanks again,
Chris

Each time I make this change and then reboot, it's back enabled again. I can't find why it keeps getting enabled.
Is there anything that will cause this to be re-enabled? Already verified that it's not through group policy.

I was reading a tutorial on how to make your computer lock like a network computer on start-up (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/xp-network-log-on-for-home-users/). One of the steps was to go to Start, point to Administrative Tools and click on Local Security Policy. However, the menu does not show the option "Local Security Policy". If there is any way I can show it please let me know. Any ideas?

Hi is it possible to fix/repair local security policy from the recovery console? This is on a Win7 x64 Ultimate machine.

I inadvertently stuffed the setting for "Access this computer from the network" by removing "Everyone" but not adding Authenticated Users before applying and can't login locally or remotely to my PC. For some reason there aren't any restore points either (my other PC with Win7 x64 Ultimate has many and I don't remember explicitly disabling or enabling on either PC).

Only thing I can do with it is access my network shared folders ironically!

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

A:How to edit Local Security Policy from recovery console

If you have a Windows 7 installation DVD or a system repair disk, you can boot the system with it. Select the default language, then choose "Repair your computer". Then select "Command Prompt". At the command prompt type:

net user administrator /active:yes

Hit Enter.

Remove the DVD, reboot the computer, and log into the built-in Administrator account.Then undo the changes.

How do I add a restriction to the local security policy through a batch file (or a registry key, any method that I can script using batch/python is good)? I'm trying to add a restriction that disallows a path, but I plan to be doing it on quite a few computers that don't share a group policy, so a batch file or other script would be really handy. Thanks!

EDIT: Most of the computers are XP, so I posted this here, but would the same steps still apply to Vista?

first off i'll say i don't know the answer to your question.

i'm pretty sure you can't batch script security policy. registry is easy if you know the key(s) you need, so you could batch .reg files.

A:Local security policy error and missing tabs on properties

You can restore missing tabs on properties go to Start>Run, type regedit. In the Registry Editor go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
you should have a DWORD key "NoDispSettingsPage" change the value to "0".
If you don't see "NoDispSettingsPage" create the key give it a value of "1" then go back and change the value to "0".

**ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES**

If you're not comfortable messing with the registry wait for someone else with another suggestion. Good Luck!!!

I have computers that are not on a domain they are just part of a work group. each computer has a Agent and a Admin account. My employees log into the agent account which is a limited account. However they still can use the cd-rom. The problem with this is they put cd's in and listen to music. this slows down their production and causes issues on the floor. Is there a way to change the local policy on said machines to not allow the limited account access to the cd-rom and keep it from reading it or something?

To be totally honest here....

I think you have more of a personnel management problem than a PC problem.

If you don't want folks listening to CD's while they are working, make the

(Windows XP Pro) I am trying to distribute new policies. One registry.pol file for each of Machine and User. The Machine policies take effect without any problems. But the User policies will not take effect until I go into gpedit.msc and change any user setting (doesn't matter what it is). I can view the User settings, and they are set correctly, but the problem of not taking effect still exists.

I distribute these policies in a script and run gpupdate /force and reboot the machine. But still,the problem exists.

I have determined that if a system already has User policy settings, the new settings I deploy take effect as expected. But if a system does not have any User policies set, I experience the problem.

Any idea how to overcome this?

A:Local Policy restriction issue

Long shot, but if IE was previously used to open a file (presumably .htm, or .html) from a removable device, e.g.: by going to File > Open > Browse..., and the removable device (e.g.: USB stick) has since been removed the program may 'hang' whilst trying to (unsuccessfully) open the file location. I saw this quite a bit with older operating systems (e.g.: Windows 98, 2000, and to a lesser extent XP) and usually with floppy disks. However IE has been around for a long time and whilst some parts are quite new other 'root' parts probably are not!

Hello, I'm using window 7 home. So i dont have local group policy. I want to stop user other than "admin" myself to enter control panel. Anyone know to do it manually? I know there is a way to do it manually with regedit at user setting but not sure how. Or is there any software that does the same thing as local group policy of pro--enterprise edition of window 7?

I am managing a computer network with about 60 machines running XP Pro. I am currently using a login.bat file from our server. I am looking to edit each machine?s Local Policy using the registry. I need to edit the Policy (Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Remote Assistance) and change the Offer Remote Assistance Properties to Enabled and add users to that list. Does anyone know where I might find the entries in the registry? I think I might be able to figure out how to edit it using my batch file as I already am editing it to Turn Remote Desktop On and Remote Assistance On but I just need to know where this is at in the registry!

Grant the account you are logging on with the "Log On Locally" right in the Local Security Policy of the server you are logging onto. If it is a Domain Controller, you may also need to do the same thing in the Domain Controller Security Policy snap-in on the server you are logging onto.

And if that doesnt work, look here: Deny Log-on Locally

Hi !

Windows 7 group policy

I've read a lot of post on this topic but haven't been able to find a clear answer to this question.

Is it possible to create different policies on a local machine and somehow assign these policies to the groups logging in on this machine ? Seems to me that changing the group ploicy affects all users.

The machine is not on a network. It is a computer for test purposes in the field not having a domain server to handle the group policies.

Kind regards

Gpedit does change group policies, and all users in that group are affected. I am a little confused as to what you want to do to the users.

Hello everyone,


I am slowly working my way through Scott Muellers Comptia A+ Cert guide and currently learning about security fundmentals. I have a test rig running XP Pro service pack three.

However when I wanted to go into local group policy to hide specified drives on that computer (as an experiment) I couldn't see anything listed under windows components except media player.

I followed the same route as you would on windows 7, User config-administrative templates-windows components, but there is nothing there. By the way my test rig is not connected to any networks at all.

What did I miss?!

Thanks

Here's my situation. I've got a computer that's shared by several people (in a small church library), which I'm trying to lock down in a controlled fashion.

The system is running Windows XP Professional. In addition to the administrator account, I've created one restricted account for the librarian, which is password-protected, and one restricted account with no password for everybody else. It's a stand-alone computer -- no domain, no domain controllers, no active directory.

I've successfully implemented a local group policy which prevents users from doing things like changing screen resolution, screen saver settings, etc. But I'd like to have this restriction apply only to the one "everybody" account, and not to the other accounts, and I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. Is it possible? What are the steps involved?

Thanks,
Tom

Hello, Tom, and welcome to TSF. If the "open to everyone" account is used by really numerous individuals, of varying levels of IT competence, then I would strongly suggest you take some time and have a look at a utility provided gratis by Microsoft, the Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP.

Is there a manual way I can disable the reboot function?

The Windows 7 Home Premium edition doesn't include the Local Group Policy Editor. However, you can use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to disable the automatic restart for Windows Updates instead.

Hi, I have a question about the Local Group Policy Editor. I know you can either enable or disable things for all users but is there any way to enable or disable things for only a certain user group (either Standard Users in general or a customized user group created in the Local Users & Groups Editor (lusmgr.exe). For example if I want only a certain user group to be able to lock the computer, in the Local Group Policy Editor I can enable that so no-one can lock the computer but I want admins to be able too etc.

I would love it if someone could answer my question soon

So I was poking around the local security policy and it looks like I fobar'd a setting. Now when I go to logon I get "the local security policy of this system does not permit you to logon interactively." That goes for any of the accounts even in safe mode.

So question is how do I best go about fixing this? Is there a way I can either reset or apply a security template without loging in?

Before I did what I did, I did create a restore point but I cant get into windows to use it and my install does not have a recovery console.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey all, stuck against a bit of a wall, here. I have a bunch of vista computers and I need them to automatically map a network drive whenever the user logs in.

In the past, we've used a login script and a .bat file to create the shares. But we're getting ready to switch over to vista, but the login script doesn't work under vista.

I've heard that its better to use Group Policy for this, but I cannot figure out how to do it using LOCAL GROUP POLICY. I've found about 100 or so guides for doing it using active directory/serverside things, but we're not on active directory, so that's not an option.

I'm sure there is a policy somewhere, can anyone direct me to it?

When you map a drive on the workstation, and put a check in the box Reconnect on Logon (sign-in) it will reconnect every time.

A:The local policy of the system does not permit to logon.

On Windows 2003 by default, Domain Admins have the right to login remotely. For everyone else, they have to be in the Remote Desktop Users group. Also, you have to go into Domain Controller Policy and assign them rights to login remotely. I dunno if that is the only way, but from my troubles with that as well, that is how I got around it.

Hello,

Does anyone know how to exclude a user from accessing anything on
a local computer , but still be able to use a shared program from that
machine? IE. not be able to see the computer or folder through
my network places or through computer management "shares" folder
or be able to change any settings on the aformentioned machine?
Basically, I want to share a program but not have that user have the
ability to change anything on this "server". It is a peer to peer setup
with XP pro running on all machines. I have tried everything from
sharing and security - but it is my understanding that a Group Policy /
Local Policy should be setup for this machine which would prevent access?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Local Group Policy - program excusions for users

How are they going to access it if you take away all the permissions from accessing? I see your quandary. Not sure how you are going to give them permissions to use something that you don't want them to use.

You can deny them local login access to the machine but if they need access to something over the network they have to see it to be able to use it.

Hi,

I'm not sure where to post this as it's not really a network issue due to the computers not being domained.

At the moment I am applying local group policy settings for each computer (many computers) manually on each machine (Taking about 20 minutes per machine due to the MANY settings that need checking).

Is there any way I can cut this time down by saving a set of policy options from one computer and applying that set to multiple other computers (via a usb stick etc?)
