Is this a Domain Computer or a Workgroup Computer. If it is not part of a Company Domain then you can use GPEDIT.MSC to edit your group policies otherwise you would have to remove the policy from your Domain Controller.

I would only use GPedit if I really knew what I was doing. Who setup the Group Policy in the first place. I would talk to them.

Group policy(s) are there so that corporate can control exactly what people do. Hence it is centrally administrated (from a central server). If you are on good terms with whatever domain administrator put this in place then talk to them and they should be able to ammend or remove the policy as they see fit. Now the bit I wanted to add was that if you are at a home office with a machine that conencts via say a VPN (Virtual Private Network) then a useful command line tool is GPUPDATE, which you issue from a command line (Start Button > Run > {TYPE}gpupdate [Return] this will force the policy to update. Reboot and your good to go.
