I have a Kiosk PC I am setting up. I used the Group Policy Object Editor to create a secured user. I have 2 more to set up. Is there any way to move - export/import - transfer the policy to another win7 PC?

Yes, follow the procedure below

Open %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy\ Within this folder, there are two folders - “machine” and “user”. Copy these to folders to the “%systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy - folder on the target machine. Restart the machine or run GPUPDATE /force

Because the suggestion given did not work. My goal was to create 1 policy and use it on all three pc's but it did not work. I did this myself manually and resolved my own problem.
