Above Users Group I see the following users group: NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE but I read  on Technet that this group shouldn't be shown in the group administration GUIs because it is created by Windows 2000 systems automatically (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/topics/issues/W2kCCSCG/W2kSCGcd.asp).

What are you think about it?

Bye

NT AUTHORITY\INTERACTIVE is created automatically under Users Group within the Local Users and Groups. This is designed to contain the user account for the user logged on locally at the computer. You won't see this group on domain controllers except under Foriegn Security Principals because domain controllers don't have a local SAM. Don't worry about this group-- it's nothing to worry about.

PashaMod,
I must say I am quite pleased to see these Forced Accepts! It tends to get rather frustrating to put in effort of answer some of these issues only to have no follow-up from some of these guys. Thanks for the consideration!
