Windows 7: Can't find Group Policy Editor

Can't find Group Policy Editor

I have logged in as administrator and I am trying to start up the 'Group Policy Editor' using gpedit.msc but Windows 7 can't find it. Is this something that has to be installed or comes inbuilt with Windows 7?

The Home edition does not have access to the Group Policy.

True, but isn't there a fix for this? Can one simply add the file(s) from a version that does?

Not that I know of, and, of course, it wouldn't be sanctioned if there were. Generally, those with HP must edit the registry.

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.
