My network is running two domain controller and 50 XP client machine, the problem is that my user is able to installed any software in client machine. I have checked all the policy in my domain there is no such policy, I even checked the local administrator group of each client machine there is no domain user is add in local administrator group. How this possible the user getting the admin rights on each machine? Please help me to rectify this issue. Regards, Furqan Ahmed

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not sure why your users are able to install software if they are not in the local admin group – but you certainly should be able to stop this with a Group Policy. THIS LINK should help you head in the right direction…..good luck!

    Check on the local machine what rights the user has, not on the server level.  Since it appears that he may have more rights locally (power user / Admin User) than he should.  This may need to be changed and verified on the local machine and not on the server level.  Since you said that he is able to get to a command line, that is what clued me.
