yeah, your screen capture is show probably a memeber machine and not a policy from the domain.
As the above experts indicated, you have to disable in the domain level.

But why do you want to do such thing? If you disable it, you are putting your self back int he day of older than NT4 without the complexity password policy of the dll filter applied.

Without the complexity password, you password can be listed easily by many software.....
