I would like to know much about the difference between the following groups, especially between Authenticated users and domain users.
I pasted the definitions from this site:http://www.ss64.com/ntsyntax/security_groups.html

Authenticated Users:    A group that includes all users whose identities were authenticated when they logged on. Membership is controlled by the operating system.
Domain Users :   A global group that, by default, includes all user accounts in a domain. When you create a user account in a domain, it is added to this group automatically.
  Users :   A built-in group. After the initial installation of the operating system, the only member is the Authenticated Users group. When a computer joins a domain, the Domain Users group is added to the Users group on the computer. Users can perform tasks such as running applications, using local and network printers, shutting down the computer, and locking the computer. Users can install applications that only they are allowed to use if the installation program of the application supports per-user installation.
