Windows 7: Cannot change settings of the Group Policy - Security Options

Cannot change settings of the Group Policy - Security Options

Hello Seven Forums,

So I was trying to disable the 'Network Access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication' since it was enabled which meant I couldn't save passwords. When I right clicked it and opened properties, the options of enabled and disabled were grayed out. Also, there is a padlock on the icon of the Security Settings tab and so does its subtabs. I am on an administrator account but it still doesn't allow me to change the settings. It would be awesome if someone can provide me all the possible solutions; done on Registry Editor would be preferable.

Thanks!

Well I was going to but looking at your specs I don't have the security clearance needed.
Do you still have the domain problem you had here.

I do believe that problem must be solved first.

Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy
Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
