Recently, I started a service using a user account.  I was told that user account was granted "Log on as a service" privileges (naturally).  So, after changing it back, now I want to remove those permissions.  I'm using Active Directory.  How do I do that?

TIA

Start/run/secpol.msc /a
Navigate to Local Policies/User Rights Assignments
Log on as a service is in the right-pane...double click it to remove the account.

Well, I got that far, which is why I'm posting here.  What I get when I double click the policy is a window listing who its assigned to, local setting and effective setting. Listed are two users and one group (to which one of the users belongs).  *None of the local policy setting boxes are checked*  So how do I remove a user from this list?  There's an option to add, but not remove.

Nevermind, I found the solution.  I was editing the local security settings, this permission was being set by the domain controller security policy.

I can remove it by going to security settings: local policies: user rights.  If I pull it up, I then have an option of removing it.

I found it in the dompol.msc, not in secpol.msc.
