    Stop Local Group Policy Applying to the Local Machine Admin

    Hi guys,

    I have seen this somewhere but now I don't seem to be able to find it?

    I am setting up some laptops (no domain controller) and I want to restrict the "students" account on them. I know that if I change the local group policy (gpedit.msc from Run) it will affect both the Admin account ("ITAdmin") and the student account. I only want the group policy to affect the student account. I read about a crude workaround to this ages ago.. but now cannot find it??

    Thanks for any help.

    deny administrator access to the GroupPolicy Folder on the C: drive perhaps?

    Just to update.

    In the end I used:

    http://www.petri.co.il/killpol.htm

    Killpol - This tool enables you to temporarily remove policy restriction for the current user.

    Works for me!

    Smile Block local Admin GP settings

    We had to work out how to do this for our XPe Devices. It took my collegue a long time to work out the way to solve this issue, but Jean Marc managed in the end.

    We have decided to write it down on my blog, so please see

    How to stop an Admin account getting Local GP settings | Simon Todd's Free Technical Blog!

    The post tells you which keys to change to stop local GP settings being forced on a local admin

    Thanks
