I found that I don't have secpol.msc on my Vista box.
I googled around and discovered that it is not supplied with the home
edition of Vista but that the same thing can be accomplished but
editing the registry. So I changed the key


from 3 to 2 (also tried all the other options) but I still get the same
error message:

session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE
