Keeping UAC on you also get the benefits of the built in process sandbox, IE and Chrome both use.
You can, but I can't. I'm running Home premium, no group policy editor.
Its not Group Policy, Administrative Tools > Security Management (will be named different but will have "Security" in the name.) Every version of Windows has Local Security Policy.

I don't have Home premium. But don't you even have the file "C:\Windows\System32\secpol.msc"?? That would do the trick. I know you don't have "gpedit.msc", but its not the same, right?
No, search shows "no items" and I don't see it listed in the system32 folder. In this case I don't need it as I wouldn't do as you proposed anyway. I don't have any standard user accounts on my PC. I do miss no having the group policy editor though. Knowing I don't have it I just thought I would mention that not everybody has that option.

I don't see anything like that in administrative tools, also search doesn't show it either.

Assuming this is correct:
Local Security Policy Editor - Open
You will not have the Local Security Policy Editor available in the Windows 7 Starter and Home Premium editions.
