Preferred Solution: How to configure group policy in work group

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to configure group policy in work group

Sneaker.Net.

Walk to each computer and set the policies on each computer. If you are not in a domain environment you are basically have to set each one manually.

My only other thought is if all the computers are exactly the same make and model and you have some type of imaging software. You could make a standard install on one computer with all the settings you want and then use that computer to image all the other computers on your network.

Hi all,
I received this message when i tried to look at the local group policy setting on one of my machines (Windows XP SP3), which is joined in my domain.
"Failed to open group policy object on this computer. You may not have appropriate rights.
Details:
Unspecified error."
note that I am local admin.
It's all started when I was troublshooting WSUS connectivity and i looked at the WinsdowsUpdate.log, the WSUS server was <Null> & WSUS status server <Null>, I tried to force the domain GP by using GPupdate /force, it went fine and asked to
log off, but nothing changed in the WindowsUpdate.log still <Null>. Then i tried to look at the local policy setting.
I searched the internet nothing related to my case.
Thanks in advance for advising.

I currently am an IT engineer and am setting up a start menu for TS users and general users and another for Administrators.
I've setup the group policy and folder redirection to the specified folder and it all works.
BUT the programs are not installed in all the machines so the links are inactive and do not work, I'd like to know if the links for the programs that are not installed can be removed for the session to stop people clicking and it looking ugly.
some of the computers run windows 8.1 x64 and I've setup a custom start menu to be applied for the group that the user is in.
Now, all that is fine and jolly but any application that is not installed on a workstation does not remove the link and in windows 8 will keep the tile. this isn't useful as it looks horrible.

Can anybody point me in the right direction of something that will remove the tiles from sight if the program they point to is not valid AKA chrome installed and firefox not.

Is it possible to set administrators to one GP and standard users to another? I want to disable Command Prompt, Task Mgr and lockout all USB and CD drives for standard users but allow administrators to access all of those.

How do i set different group polices depending on user?

Thanks in advance

A:Set Group Policy different for each user group?

Yep. As long as the policies you want to deploy to those groups are per-user (i.e. within the user configuration section of GP Editor), then you can use a tool like Microsoft's GPMC to "security filter" the effects of a GPO to a particular user group. Or, you might want to check out Desktop Policy Manager--www.sdmsoftware.com/desktop_management, which provides a simplified web interface into Group Policy and makes targeting by group much simpler (full disclosure--I work for this company).

Hi,

I have a Windows Server 2000 SP4, and 3 XP PRO machines.

I have manged to set up usernames etc in active directory, but when it comes to group policy, and deploying it on XP, where by i click on the domain controller in active directory users, and add a group policy.

Say in group policy, i wanted to set the Homepage for internet explorer as http://google.co.uk - for example, this wouldn't take effect on a Windows XP machine logged in as the domain member. It is as if the whole group policy feature doesn't work.

Cheers. Jon

I have read this post: Group Policy - Apply to a Specific User or Group on how to assign policies to certain users/groups. The first comment is exactly the problem I am having. I want to make a group, create a new policy and assign it to that group but according to the response you cannot do that with new custom groups.
I can get it to work with Administrators and non-Administrators just fine but my new group does not show up.
There was some mention of being able to assign the policy to a user and then set it for the custom group but I don't know how to so that.

Thanks,
Scott

A:Group Policy for only a certain Group

I've never messed with local group policy, but it looks like what you want is unfortunately not possible. Local GP seems incredibly limited compared to domain policy. "Administrators" and "Non-administrators" are not actually groups as far as I can tell, rather just some obscure classification applied by local policy to the "Administrators" group and anybody not in the "Administrators" group. I saw the comment you are talking about and to me it looks like the poster is just mentioning to apply it to each individual user that needs it. Hopefully somebody else has some good news for you, though.

Hi there,

I have a network scenario which used to be solved with Go-Back, which would restore our 40 pc's in our school computer suite perfectly.

We would now like to build a clone and set some group policy lockdown and remove go-back, as its giving us problems. I have gone through and made most changes to the "adminstrative template" that would suit our scenario. When logging on as a test user this works perfectly. However these policys also affect administrators. Is this the way group policy works or is there a way to set the policys just for certain groups e.g 'domain users'.

Sorry no previous experience with group policy what so ever. I have mass reading for this evening but any tips in the mean time would be much appreciated.

Hi everyone,

I Googled this to death, but could not find a direct or easy answer to how to do this or even if its possible.

I want to know if its possible, on one local machine, to apply Group Policy restrictions to just one user account, or at least to prevent the restrictions from being applied to the administrator account? When I apply the Group Policy restrictions they do work, but they're automatically applied to (my) admin account as well.

Is there any feasible way to figure this out? You'd think it would be possible to do.

Hi CIS,

As the concept of group policy is derived from the Client server network model a local policy, which I would assume is the type involved here, will apply to all local accounts.

If you can give more information on the restrictions you are trying to apply there may be an alternative method of achieving this for certain user groups only

Hey guys, I got my domain to work after a month, all users can sign in etc.
But I want to edit the group policy a bit

In a list can you tell me if this is possible. (It must be, my school has done it)
1. Automatically map a network drive to a specific drive letter
2. Enable the windows sidebar and choose what gadgets they are on.
3. Choose whats on the desktop
4. Lastly, A protected folder for one person each (e.g If another user clicks on it says access is denied)

Thank you in advance

A:Group Policy

1) A logon script would be best in this regards.
4) In AD you can specify a home folder which is specific to a user. The folder is just a share where you only allow the specific user to has access (permission).

Okay, I've done some research on XP Professional Group Policy, and have browsed the interface via the gpedit.msc

Now I'm ready to make a huge step (for me anyway) and that is disabling some features on my kid's "limited" XP accounts. Before I make any changes, however, I need to know I'm going about this in the right way.

I have 3 accounts set up on my laptop: 1 admin account, 2 limited accounts for my kids.

My Goal: to remove ready access to IE, Windows Updates, Add/Remove Programs, My Computer (so they can't delete any files from any directories), or anything else that a 4 year old and 7 year old might do to wreak havoc or go places they shouldn't be when I'm turning my back for a moment. Note that I say "ready" access to these things. I do understand that there are many ways to go about invoking/navigating to these applications/areas, but I figure I've got a while yet before my 7 year old figures out how to circumvent things. Removing the IE icon from the desktop, for example, should be enough for now.

In order to access the Group Policy Editor, use "gpedit.msc" (without the quotes of course) from the "Run" window.

I'm not certain where in a Policy you will find what you are seeking, it's been a while since I've tinkered around in here. Just be careful as the system could get really locked down depending on what is changed.

Group Policy Editor is a feature in Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise editions of Windows 7. It does not belong to Starter, Home Basic and Home Premium.

If you need Gpedit you can use Windows Anytime Upgrade to upgrade your Home Premium to Professional or Ultimate without losing your data and installed software.. This tutorial will help you with Anytime Upgrade: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/95744-windows-anytime-upgrade-how.html

Any third party hack to get Gpedit to Home Premium is against the End User Licence Agreement of your Windows 7 and can include procedures that might seriously harm your computer.

At work, the domain I am in creates an icon on my desktop every time I log in.

It's REALLY ANNOYING, especially as it's for the can't-help-with-that desk, who I never use.

Turns out this is created by group policy.

I have asked for them to modify my user so it does not get created, but as I don't have admin rights on this particular domain server, as a fallback, I'm looking to see if I can't mess with the policy on my desktop - or at least block it from creating the damn icon... any clues form anyone as to how, would be most welcome!!!!

I was wondering if someone can help me.

When I try to access the Group Policy via the run command gpedit.msc while being logged on as user I receive the following error message:

Group Policy Error

You cannot perform this operation. Please contact your system administrator.

I then logged in as Administrator and opened the Group Policy>Computer Configuration>windows settings>security settings>security options

What policy do I need to reconfigure so that the GO is accessible when the user is logged on?

Thanks

I have a laptop that a user is the local admin of. I created a group policy to deny alot of the functions. I also don't want them to be able to install any kind of software being an admin. Is this possible? I have to have this user be an admin on this laptop. Thanks
