I'm going to post a caveat, maybe just rename the folders instead of deleting them. Or Move Them. The effect is the same, but if for some reason it farks up you system when you do this (which it really shouldn't), or it doesn't fix it, at least you can put them back. Copy over the existing files and folders with the copied/renamed items.

You could also launch gpedit.msc and change the admin approval modes as well to be less restrictive. IF this is fixing it, and you delete the local policies, any fixes that security patches have put in place might be removed if they are dependent on the group policy settings.

But yeah, this will force local policy to be vanilla, and works for most of these situations.

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.
