Hi Zourous,
No the reason that you can se it is M$ want you to administer LOCAL policies from Domain Policy, which dont help you id you dont have a domain, sorry.

You can remote control a PC and edit its local policy, but if you have a lot of machines this is impractical.

Actually, you can do this without remote controlling the remote PC:

Start->Run->MMC
Console (or File with XP)->Add/Remove Snap-In->Add button->Group Policy->Add button->Browse button->Computers tab->"Another Computer" radio button

OK all the way back and you are now seeing the remote computer's local group policy, but you don't see all things, especially under security stuff.

You can even save this as a local .msc file on your computer so you don't have to go through that every time...
