The Computer Configuration section of a GPO deals with general policies of specific computers. These policies affect all users who log onto that computer. Computer Configuration is divided into different sections: Software Settings, Windows Settings, Administrative Templates. There’s no intrinsic logic to this division, you just have to get used to knowing where to find the relevant bit of a GPO!
