Local policy Settings

I can find some reasons
- you have no access in ACL, if you're administrator - you can set Rights
- you set one of NoAccess flag, that have Higher priority , In this case you must take ownership to object and set actual rights
- if you have Active Directory then AD overload local policy

If you are running a domain, then answer 1 is correct, you need to log on to the PC locally to set Local Security Policy, otherwise, AD settings override Local. Secondly, make sure that the account used IS Administator otherwise, you have no rights to change Local Security policies. To do this, open an explorer window and under Tools, Folder Options, View, scroll to the bottom of the list and disable "Use simple file sharing". This will allow more usability for the Security setting of the localPC. Take ownershipof the PC and set Local Security settings.
