I am trying to make users and groups with rights and permissions

I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit and I am trying to make users and put them into groups that I also want to create. You see I want to make these users and groups have special rights and permissions. I right click computer left click manage and then when I get to the computer management screen there is no users and groups in the list. This is extremely disappointing, in xp, and server 03 I can do that with ease. All from the computer management screen, please help me.

Hello Sinix, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This is because you have the Windows 7 Home Premium edition installed.

"Local Group Policy Editor" and "Local Users and Groups" is only available in Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions.

Sorry

Makes sense

Yah that's what I figured, that is a shame. I guess I spent $220 for nothing then, I wonder if Microsoft will refund my money and take back the garbage copy of windows that I bought, because I have no use for it now

I doubt it since you already opened, installed, and activated it.

It's bad luck. However, you can't blame Microsoft for you not reading or comparing the features that are included in each different edition of Windows 7 to see which one would meet your needs or requirements before purchasing it.

Yah I kinda knew that, well looks like ultimate is the one I need, I not only want to make policies but I also want to enforce them, that's kind of a dumb thing with the pro version that you can make them but cannot enforce them. Looks like I have to spend a lot more money for one thing I want to be able to do whole heartedly not just half of..
