Here's my sitituation. The users in my domain are standard users. As a standard user they are not able to open a jpeg or save a jpeg in paint. I understand it is a permissions issue. I come to that conclusion as the user with power users rights or admin rights I have no problem. I do not want to give my whole company power user rights. Any suggestions. This is on a W2k pro machine.

Your question really makes no sense.  MS Paint is NOT doing this.  There is something else going on here.

Jhance, you are correct it is not paint.. it is the os and permmissions. I just have not figured out what permissions with out giving the user.. power users privelages.  If I change the security and give the user full control  in regedt32 hkey local machine\software\microsoft\shared tools\ the user can them open Jpgs but still can not save them.
