    Sorry if this thread already exists but just wondering if there is any way to apply the local security policy in windows XP pro to only one account? Specifically apply to every account but the administrator account, as a limited administrator account is useless to me.

    Thanks.

    For almost every policy in secpol.msc, you assign the attributes of that policy to particular users or groups. Administrators can be left out if you like.
