    Local account lockdown policy

    On our XP laptops (for Staff) we used to use a local policy to lockdown their local account (a different account to the domain, for use offline) which was done by simply using Gpedit and then denying access to the Group Policy folder for Administrators.

    Is this still possible in Windows 7? We do this to make sure they use the local My Documents when offline, and then My Documents is redirected to their network share when back online, otherwise we would just let them use their network account to login offline.

    There are a bunch of ways to do this and the way you were using looks to still work:
    Local Group Policies - Apply to All Users Except Administrators - Windows 7 Forums
