Rights assignments in Windows 2000

I am trying to give users permission to change their password. I give "authenticated users" the right to change their password. I apply the permission and when I go back into the user account and look at the authenticated user group, the right to change the password is unchecked again. I am unable to make it apply permanently. Even anyone in the administrator group is denied permission to change their password. Any idea's?

The authenticated user group is not used to assign permissions.

Everyone vs.Authenticated Users groups

Both are global groups
“Everyone” group includes everyone, even unauthenticated users
“Authenticated Users” group includes all users who have supplied proper credentials
Wherever possible, remove permissions for Everyone group and replace with permissions for Authenticated Users
