Local Policy can be edited per user, Global Policy cannot as it affects all users on the machine. At least that is what I remember. Can someone prove me wrong? Otherwise why was my answer rejected?

Hmmm. Well I was always told and under the impression and GPO is global and not user specific. So I guess we both will learn something then. Thanks for your response.

I think you should also try these steps and see.Before you start that log on as an administrator.
1.Go to control panel,computer management at the left pane expand local users and groups then click on groups.
2.On the right pane you'll see about eight policies over there i.e administrators,guest,power user,users etc.At the description end it mention that users are restricted from doing certain things.
3. Right click on users then properties you see how users are group and then from there you can assign certain policies that will add or remove and affect the user from doing certain things.
