NO LOCAL ADMIN = NO INTERNET
Posted on 2004-04-21
I have a PC in my enterprise that logs on with the same domain credentials every morning. The PC stays logged on with these credentials all day while it is used. A request was made to remove the local admin rights from this user. I have tried to do this through AD by yanking the user's membership in a group with local admin rights on the PC.
[AD users & comp./user properties/member of tab]
I also tried another method of simply removing that group from membership in the administrators group on the local pc.
[Local PC , computer mgt/users and groups/groups/administrators]
Either way when the user logs back on, Internet explorer comes back with the famous "page cannot be displayed message" no matter what website you hit.
I can't figure out how this could be happening.
