Windows 2003 standalone group policy

Hey Guys
This is what I have:
1) Standalone windows 2003 standard server SP2 (This computer is part of a workgroup at the moment)
2) Multiple people log on to the computer and for some, I'd like to apply a group policy
3) How do I go about it? Primarily, I need to use this setting 'Remove Add or Remove programs' which removes this option from control panel.

Should I go to administrative tools -> local security policy or do something else? I went here but couldn't find the above setting. I'm also interested in applying other settings such as disable time setting and a few others.
Thank you

and would this get applied to all users by default or do i have to configure something more? I really need detailed steps

Thank you

START>RUN>GPEDIT.msc
User Confiuration>Administratvie Templates>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs..
On the Right pane you would see "Remove Add or Remove Programs".. by default this would be set to Not Configured..

you can change this to Enabled... however this will affect all users ..

You can also make those users normal users instead of Admins.
