    I recently tried to use group policies on a WinXP Pro box to have greater control over Windows. I want to create a policies that would restrict one user (member of the "restricted user" group), without affecting the administrative group. I set up a policy that had a few restrictions...just as an experiment, by implimenting policies under the "User Configurations" (Administrative templates), and when I saved the consol and logged into an administrative account, the policies were in effect for the administrative group. I know there is a way to set up policies to work on one user/group and not have any affect on others...but I can't remember

    Please help.

    Local policies affect everyone on the computer. You would need a domain controller to set polices by group.
