For my system, there are two accounts. I applied a few changes to a secondary account via the group policy object snap-in of Window's management console. Despite applying these changes to the secondary account, these changes were somehow skipped without myself noticing this and I'm now unable to apply them again -- and some of them have been applied to me, strangely.
Secondly, I'm wondering if there's a resource where I can learn more about Windows administration because frankly, from the way I see these tools at present -- they suck, and have the most awful of interfaces. Obviously it's my lack of understanding, so perhaps some resource can offer clarity whereby I can address these "loopholes".
