Can't enable store passwords using reversible encryption

In a windows xp pro box on a domain I need to change the store passwords using reversible encryption option in the group policy object editor to enabled.  This option is set to disabled in our domain policy that all the users that log into thiss pc are getting their policy from but I need to force this pc to have it enabled.  Does anybody know a registry key that makes this possible or a way to un-gray out that option for this pc.  I logged in as the local administrator and it was still grayed out.

A domain group policy will override any local policies, you'll have to put this computer in a special OU with it's own domain group policy that allows reversable encryption.
Always reset password after switching to reversable encryption.  Or it will not store it properly!
