    Windows XP won't let me access the Group Policy Editor by typing gpedit.msc into the Run Dialogue. Is there a way to find it in the system files? Or am I out of luck?

    You're out of luck if you have XP Home. No GP in there. :(

    Actually I found a way to put it into Windows XP Home. My question now is, is that a EULA violation. If so I'll restore it out and get rid of it. I found the .dll files and all that stuff on a site and was able to add those to the system32 folder and register them to give XP Home the GPE.

    Cool but I'm questioning. xD

    I would still sleep soundly if I did that. ;) If you have trouble sleeping, try making it a hidden file. :D
