    I have two computers side by side- same model and both running same version of Win2k. Both log in local (not part of a domain) and they form their own small workgroup of two. On one I need to be local admin to edit the group policy settings (Start->Run->gpedit.msc). I get an error as soon as I type this in as a normal standard user. On the other computer, a normal user can edit the group policy settings. I am logged in as a standard user and I can go to the group policy editor and change whatever I want and the updated settings take effect. This is troubling because I am changing access to map a network drive and see the Entire Network. A normal user on computer #2 can just go in and change it back so they can map and browse.

    Very bizarre- any ideas? thanks
