Is it true that using 'group policies' and 'software restriction policy' requires connecting to an 'Active Directory' domain and having 'Client for Microsoft Networks' installed? If so, are there any workarounds? What are my options for XP Pro on a standalone PC?

Group Policy is for Windows Server operating systems. There are no workarounds that I am aware of.

 

Single PCs use the User Account system. What are you trying to accomplish?

 

I am wrong. See Louis's post.

Thanks for the link. If I am reading it right, then I do not have to have domain stuff and 'Client for Microsoft Networks' installed, which I was told on another forum was required.

I am trying to lock down XP Pro using as many different methods as possible. Group Policy, Software Restriction Policy, and Hosts File for starters, then whatever else I can find to make life difficult for script kiddies.
