It is a setting that each user MUST set for themselves, and CANNOT be controlled externally.  If it could, that would open a HUGE security hole.

What you have done, manuulay, to set the Security to LOW is the only mechanism, and EACH USER sets it for themselves.

then perhaps you do not have the necessary privileges to set the Security to Low on your PC.  If I am not mistaken, that requires Administrative Rights....but I could be wrong there.
