Start, run. mmc, enter, click on file then click on add remove snap in, then click add, click on Group Policy, then add. Choose local computer, finnish, close the add stand alone snap in, click OK in the Add/Remove snapin Box.

Very strange, should have Group policy in the snapin window. Local users and groups wouldn't be what you need. I don't know what else to say.
