Windows Vista allows for administrators to enter the Local Group Policy Editor and set policies that will directly affect what a user can and cannot do when they logged into their accounts. And the Local Group Policy Editor can even be handy for disabling certain features, even if you only want to disable them for just the one account (your own if you’re the admin). For instance, the administrator could allow everyone who uses the computer to see the Windows Features dialog or not see it at all.
The following tutorial demonstrates how to open the Local Group Policy Editor when using a version of the Windows Vista operating system.
