Vista Group Policy Administration RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to use group policy to secure Vista Ultimate as I have done in Windows Server 2003 under a domain with Active Directory. However, Vista doesn't appear to let me apply group policy to a group I created but instead to just individual users or to the built-in groups of Administrators or Non-Administrators. Any ideas? I will not be using Active Directory on a Domain for this one - it is just a stand-alone PC but I have multiple users on it and I need to make it easy for administering the GP.
