Local Security Policy
Since stand-alone computers are not part of Active Directory, group policies do not apply to them. To view and edit a local security policy;
Log on to the computer with administrative rights.
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Local Security Policy. This opens the Local Security Settings console.
Open the items in the tree to find the policy that is to be changed.
Double-click the policy, make the change, and then click OK.
Close the Local Security Policy Settings console.
