Unless you are using a server environment, the ability to manage this setting cannot be changed across users.

You have to edit the Group Policy for each user for which you wish to modify this setting. These users must be changed to a non administrator account so that they cannot modify the GPO back to the original. It will also need to be applied for each user account created on that machine.

well, there is an issue with that. You will need to log in to each account to do this. Modifying the information for one user is only that active user. Security keys are created for each individual user and the registry hive is particular to that user at the time of log on. To blanket a system regardless of user, you need a domain controller.
