Loopback Processing

User Group Policy loopback processing mode is a policy setting you can use to maintain a computer’s configuration regardless of who logs on. Loopback processing mode configures the user policy settings based on the computer rather than on the user. When this policy setting is enabled, one set of user settings applies to all users who log on to the computer. Because this policy setting targets computer accounts, it is a powerful tool and ideally suited for closely managed environments such as servers, terminal servers, classrooms, public kiosks, and reception areas.
