Group policy editor not working

I have windows home premium 64 bit and did the gpedit_msc install, copied the required folders to the system32 folder but it seems like almost all the settings in group policy don't kick in when I apply them.

For instance, I enabled the "prevent access to command prompt" yet all users can still access the command prompt.
I tried restarting, the setting still don't apply and go into affect.

does it matter which gpedit.msc I run?
Because there is one in the system32 folder as well as the syswow64 folder.

I have tried to use both, and none of the settings seem to apply.

Thanks in advanced for any help I can get.
