That's not available in Windows 7 Home Premium without a hack which might contravene the licensing terms.

Also it's hit or miss whether those settings actually stick. Some do and some don't.

That is correct however group policy can be applied locally without using a server. However on the home versions you have to use registry entries rather than group policy editor. It is still possible to do do things like disable automatic updates, it's just not as easy to do.
