Need Policy Help in Win 7 Pro

I have been unable to get this resolved.  I am creating a 2nd question in an attempt to find help.

I have a small peer to peer network. We spent a long time setting up the policy on 1 pc. We then imaged it over to the other 19.  The small peer to peer network is locked down... but there is no Domain Controller.

Every attempt I have made to "copy" the policy over to a NEW Computer (to be used in a new similar peer to peer network) seems to have failed.  I have followed a lot of how to's on google.

Once we import an inf or any of the other means.... if I run cmd it opens up.  BUT on any one of the original computers it is locked down.
On the original network,  any time a delete a profile and create a new standard user... the restrictions take a hold to that new user.

Any help would be appreciated greatly.

you might need to sysprep those cloned Computers

From original Computer with prepared Group policy
Open %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy\ Within this folder, there are two folders - “machine” and “user”. Copy these folders  to USB stick and copy that to other computers

and run GPUPDATE /force

By the way, I saw your another (same) topic question and I have to say secpol.mcs is non-sense , as this is only for security settings

Do you have a server at all in the network?

@David Fiala  One of the options I tired was coping those 2 folders over you are talking about. That did not seem to work either.   I already had an standard user account on the new machine.  CMD still came right up so it tells me it did not work. I wish it was that easy.   I have been using gpedit yes.  

@yo_bee No server it is peer to peer.  If I had a domain controller set up it would be much easier.
Unfortunately, that was not budgeted. I am lucky to have what I have to be honest.

That is a very tight budget.  For 19 people a standard desktop hardware would suffice to help manage easier.  Good Luck.
