gpedit.msc is missing..!!
According to this...

in Admin Tools, there are 12 tools.
But in mine, there just 10 tools. 2 are missing...
-Local Security Policy. (gpedit.msc)
-Print Management
I don't know much about Print Management, but for Group Policy ...I need it..!!
I checked in system32 folder, it's not there.
How could I get it back?? I have Vista DVD but I didn't see there's anyway to repair system file. There's just startup repair.

Thanks for help..
Lock.

Local Security Policy is secpol.msc

Try typing gpedit.msc in the Run box.

If you are running Vista home, you do not have group policy so cannot use gpedit.msc

The only versions that have group policy are the domain-based versions:

• Windows Vista, Small Business Edition

• Windows Vista, Professional Edition

• Windows Vista, Enterprise Edition

• Windows Vista, Ultimate

• Windows Server "Longhorn"

There are a lot of tweaking tools that you can use. Basically speaking, if you need to do things that policy allows, you need to get the OS that has policy installed.

Vista Manager, X-Setup, TweakVI, and TweakNow PowerPack have Vista versions. Group Policy snap-ins are just an easy way of implementing registry changes that can be done manually in most cases.

Non-Destructive???

Can you please break that down a bit for me? Is this something a rookie can handle? I have not messed with registries so I am not sure if I should even spend the money on the TweakNow software? I need to get this going so that I can access my server at work. I may be forced into plugging my old XP computer in, hopefully not??

Thanks,
Dennis
