Vista Ultimate security over individual users

Posted: 09-22-2008, 02:00 PM
I'm intending to upgrade from XP Pro to Vista Ultimate, and want to establish
how much more control the Administrator has. In XP Pro (with a little
manipulation) it's possible to exclude administrators from Local Group
Policy, but all other accounts (and the system) are still configured the
same. I want group policy-level/type control over individual users, but so
far I'm told this is only available in Active Directory.

I want to establish what Vista Ultimate can do for administrators that XP
Pro can't, and how far short such features fall in comparision to setting up
individual user configurations in Active Directory.

Hi,
"it's possible to exclude administrators from Local Group Policy"

Could you please elaborate?

Check out http://support.microsoft.com/default...en-us%3B293655
As far as I know it applies to XP as well.
