Is loopback available on local machine through registry changes?

I have a network of workgroups only and would like to utilize a "loopback" type of solution. Is the loopback option available to set as policy on the local machines through a series of registry changes, or is there an area on the local machine I'm missing?
If you are talking about group policy loopback, then no: It is not available for workgroups. What specifically do you want to do? If you always want to apply the same computer settings no matter which user logs on, then create the local group policy object to do so. Since user accounts are unique on each workstation, each person can have a different policy on his or her own computer.
