I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That would result it no one beaing able to modify the properties, why would you want to lock out a local admin? But if you did you would modify the local machine policy by running gpedit.msc however consider making this user a non admin.

This can only be done on a per machine basis and you would have to do it via Local Policies.

The reason being that group policies only apply at a domain level and a local admin is not known to the domain.
