"Local Policy Security" options missing
I run WinXP Home SP2 with administrative rights.

When I click Click Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Administrative Tools, there is no "Local Security Policy" category in the right pane.

What's up with that?

Thanks for responding.

Tried to create shortcut via desktop but got the error message:
---------------------------
Problem with Shortcut
---------------------------
The name '%SystemRoot%\system32\secpol.msc' specified in the Target box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are correct.

OK

In "Start In:", I have:
%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%
