Preferred Solution: Local Security Policy Import Access Denied

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.)


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: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.

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?

Ok, here is my issue I was trying to change my sharing settings so my dad could read a folder on my laptop which I went to the advanced sharing and had selected share. He still was not able to access this folder. I went to my Network and Sharing Center and made sure network discovery, file and printer sharing were on and password sharing was off. I still was not able to share my folder so I undid all of that. I then read this article about changing the local security policy. I went to the local security policy and went to Local Policies then Security Options and scrolled to Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication level and changed it to Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 Session security if negotiated. The default of this policy was set to nothing before. I cant seem to change it back to the default which was set as nothing. Will having this policy set affect any programs or applications at all ? Is there a way to change it back ? If you cant help with my sharing problem can you at least help me figure out how to set this Security Policy back to its default. thanks

A:Local Security Policy - Windows 7

For the sharing issue, you can just create an admin account, give your father the name and password of it, and add the account to the permission list.If you do not would like to do this (as you choose the option "password protect off"), you can modify this group policy:Computer Configuration --- Windows Settings --- Security Settings --- Local Policies --- Security Options, find this:Network access: Sharing and security model for local accountsChange it to Guest Only. Here is the explanation:If this setting is set to Guest only, network logons that use local accounts are automatically mapped to the Guest account. By using the Guest model, you can have all users treated equally. All users authenticate as Guest, and they all receive the same level of access to a given resource, which can be either Read-only or Modify.

Hi guys,

Need your guidance in understanding Local security policy

1) I have configured local security policy in windows 7 professional under run-->secpol.msc--> Securuity policies-->Account policy---->Password policy

a) Minimum password length is set to 8 characters
b) Password must meet complexity requirements is enabled (I have set a password which has lower case/number and special character)
c) Maximum password age is set to 3 days

This means password will expire in 3 days. I need to change the password after 3 days correct?

d) Enforce password history---15 passwords remembered

This means the last 15 passwords is remembered so that user will not go back to the previously used password. Is this correct?

e) Minimum password age

I have set the minimum password age to 1

Does this mean password can be changed after 1 day?
Does this mean password cannot be changed before 24 hours (Once the password is set)? I may be wrong here because I was able to change the password before 24 hours. If I'm wrong please explain me what is minimum password?

Also for point d) Initially I set the password as "X" and then changed to "Y", I changed it back to "X" and still there was no error. Enforce password history says we cannot use the same password which was used previously but I did not get any error while changing the password (Changed it to the same password "X" which I used in the first instance).

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

A:Incomplete local security policy

Try the search here:

Group Policy Search

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.


It provides links to resources about LMCompatibility Level (if it detects that it needs fixing)

Okay, so, I was going to restrict access to my computer to a limited account for everyone else since I had unexpectedly discovered nasty malware on my system. So I go to Control Panel Administrative Tools Local Security Policy. Then I get this message:

"The Group Policy security settings that apply to this machine could not be determined. The error returned when trying to retrieve these settings from the local security policy database (%windir%\security\database\secedit.sdb) was: The parameter is incorrect. All local security settings will be displayed, but no indication will be given as to whether or not a given security setting is defined by Group Policy. Any local security setting modified through this User Interface may subsequently be overriden by domain-level policies."

I can't figure out what this idiot did to my computer. Just before this happened I had to fix a logon log off loop on my machine.

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?

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. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences. "

I just tried to install Windows Installer 3 on a Win2K system, but due to various security restrictions placed by this computer's previous owner, I got an access denied error.

Being the idiot that I am, I decided to mess with the local security policy of the system, checking every box along the way. After rebooting, however, a new problem arose...

"The local policy of this system does not allow you to login interactively"
As I'm sure you can tell, this is quite frustrating. Even more frustrating is the fact that everywhere I've looked tells me to reset the policy from a different computer in the domain. This is a stand-alone system. It doesn't go online. It's not in a network.

So, my question is: How can I reset the security policy when I can't log in? I've got two weeks worth of work on it that has to be turned in by 8AM, which gives me five hours to solve this issue. Thus my problem is compounded.
(PS: The computer I'm using now is a different one, obviously.)

Not long ago Soul Invictus loaded winXPpro on the PC and confronted an issue. Thats really not surprising. Issues exist using this, the latest & greatest OS in wide distribution world-wide. It was developed upon previous versions, so it really shouldn't come as a big surprise what it does & to some extent, how it does it. Yet, it still exists with functionality barely defined to the novice user, IMHO.I have XP Professional and I'm getting my bearings on the differences between this version and another XP version. I notice this one has a Windows Firewall. My problem is that I used to be able to access my employer's company intranet from home. When I go to the site and enter my login info I get the message: Access Denied (policy_denied). Your system policy has denied access to the requested URL. For assistance, contact your network support team. I'm thinking I have to modify a setting in gpedit.msc, however I can't be sure. Any thoughts of what security setting that needs to be modified? My thoughts are:Policy information in winXPpro is kinda confusing.Like many, I am the network support team in my household.My thoughts are: "What should I do when contemplating changing a setting".Any changes might best be done knowing first what the default settings are.and where to find them.and how to interpret the information available on the OS about these settings. So, I navigated to the "group policies" that typing gpedit.msc in the &q... Read more

I have Windows 10 Pro v1511 (Nov upgrade). If you go to Local Security Policy > Local Policies > Audit Policy and set a policy, it doesn't stick. If you close and reopen the app again, the previous settings are still there. Is anybody experiencing this ? Please confirm or deny that this is happening on your rig.

Also when Local Security Policy starts, there is an error message about some admx configuration file. Also new to v1511.

A:v1511, Local Security Policy being 'forgetful'

I googled about the configuration 'admx' file issue, and it is known to MS.

One of my user accounts have been getting the error above after a shutdown.
I tried system restore but it did not work.
I have tried disabling non-windows service on startup and that didn't work
Can someone help me please!!

A:The Group Policy failed the logon. Access Denied

Here are instructions on how to fix it, or at least, how I fixed a computer at school once.

1. Logon to the machine with a machine administrator account (assuming this issue is with a domain account, if not logon to the machine using another account with administrative privilege).
2. Move the machine to a workgroup from domain. (If it was part of one workgroup then change it to another one or join a domain.) You could do this through Control Panel\System and Security\System and then Change Settings.
3. Restart the machine and logon with a machine administrator account.
4. Delete your user profile data (or move it a different location) completely from c:\users. "C" in my case is system directory but if you have a different one then use that one.
5. Join the machine back to domain account (or to workgroup that the machine was originally joined to), and restart the machine.
6. Logon with your domain account that you were having trouble with. Keep fingers crossed.
If all goes well, you should be logged on.
