Windows 7: Incomplete local security policy

27 Sep 2014   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
Incomplete local security policy


My local security policy on my Win 7 Pro x64 machine is only showing a limited set of policies (see below). I need to modify "Network security: LAN Manager authentication level" in order to remotely connect to my PC at work. But that policy does not appear in my local security policy. I have tried the following:

1. using "Security Compliance Manager" and "Local GPO" to install the default set of policies.
2. adding "LmCompatibilityLevel" registry key set to "1", see: LmCompatibilityLevel.
3. at least three "sfc /scannow" followed by restarting.

with no luck. Would appreciate your insights. ced

Try the search here:

Group Policy Search

Use the filter and tree views to find out how to apply the required settings either via Local Security Policy or via the registry if the LSP setting is not available on your machine.

As for LMCompatibility Level - I had the same issue and manually created the required registry key. I ran the software mentioned in the following link on another forum.

It provides links to resources about LMCompatibility Level (if it detects that it needs fixing)

Customize Local Security Policy
What can I do in the LSP to enhance my machine and windows 7? I love customization, but don't want to go in to anything an start clicking. I really don't know what else I can do with it inside the LSP. For example, I added the CTL + ALT + DEL function. Is there anything else or not?
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.
