Can someone explain to me what the Local Service and Network Service settings for Generate Security Audits (in the User Rights Assignment Policy) is?  I have a standalone laptop that will never be connected to/from a network.  This would never connect to the Internet also.  I do have auditing set up via the Event Viewer.  I know I wouldn't have Network Service selected but I wasn't sure if I needed Local Service or not.

The settings at that section are the names of the users/groups that have privileges to perform those actions. The properties page does not mention it but other places say that Local Service and Network service have this permission.

It's OK leaving it at the default. Then any service requiring to write audit events to the security log must run as Local Service or Network Service or System.
