Group Policy for Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0

Microsoft have now released Microsoft Security Essentials 2.0 to the web which has a number of new features over the previous version.
  • Windows Firewall integration During setup, Microsoft Security Essentials will now ask if you would like to turn the Windows Firewall on or off.
  • Enhanced protection for web-based threats Microsoft Security Essentials now integrates with Internet Explorer to provide protection against web-based threats.
  • New protection engine The updated anti-malware engine offers enhanced detection and cleanup capabilities with better performance.
  • Network inspection system* Protection against network-based exploits is now built in to Microsoft Security Essentials.
Therefore I have updated my previous post based Group Policy for Microsoft Security Essentials to support configuring the newly added features.

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.
