Windows 7: Unable to open Local Group Policy Editor (using Win 7 Pro)

Unable to open Local Group Policy Editor (using Win 7 Pro)

I want to disable auto run and auto play of my disk drives for security. To do that, I need to access my Local Group Policy.

However, while logged into my regular account, I am unable to access the Local Group Policy Editor via the gpedit.msc file.

I get a "You don't have permission to access this file" error message.

I don't even have the joy of a UAC prompt. : (

I have Win 7 Pro and am the only user and owner of my computer.

Do I have to get into my admin account and change the settings from there?
