Windows 7: how to check "Local security policy" in registry?

how to check "Local security policy" in registry?

Hi,
I have a problem connecting to a work network and have been asked to ch eck the following settings -

Go to: Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Local Security Policy
Select: Local Policies -> Security Options

there are two settings to change.
"Network security: LAN Manager authentication level" -> Send LM & NTLM responses
"Minimum session security for NTLM SSP" -> uncheck: Require 128-bit encryption

The problem is that I have the "Home premium" addition which does not have the "Local security policy editor" and would like to know how I can either add this to my version of windows7 or how to check/change these settings in the registry.

Thanks in advance,

Si.

Hello sifly, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

Sorry, but Home Premium is not equipped to connect to your work network as you wish. You will need to upgrade to Pro to do so.

Cheers!

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.
