Client prob when changing from domain admins to domian user -

Hello - does anyone know why this maybe happening.
I'm wanting to tigten the security up a little on a few Windows client computers that are conencted to windows server 2003 domain.  At present they all are members of domain admins, THat was the original setup from the start - everything works smooth and is pretty quick at the client end.  If i change any of the client Pc's to a standard domain user and remove domain admins, once the client re-logs back on the pc seems to be hanging, i.e opening files shared on the server seem to take about 15 seconds longer, applications like MS word Excel and internet explorer take extra time to open and the whole performance seems to be dragging it's heels. If i reverse the task again everything is fine.

I thought this may be due to Antivirus, but i disabled that and still no change, This happens on all the clients connected to the network.

Would appreciate some help as i don't want users having full access on teh network.


Thankyou

Please post ipconfig /all from server and client when logged on as std user.

Thanks for your help.
I won't post the details but now you mention it i have noticed that when the client is changed to domain user the dns settings are not pointing to the server, instead they are set to the default gateway router.
My problem now is, how do i change the network settings on the client pc if the permissions are set to domain user ?

Cheers - I think we are getting somewhere

Hi

On the client TCP IP should recieve everything.When asking for  IP from your DHCP (SBS) it will get
IP
Sub
GW (Firewall or second NIC on SBS)
DNS (SBS) forwarders handles SBS
Wins (SBS)

I fugured out what was causing the problem, first of all i noticed that the router was managing DHCP as well as the server, so i disabled that on the router. then i noticed a problem when shutting down the client computer, a program from MS works was not responding - the calander apparently.  I removed it from msconfig and after a restart the pc id flying again.  So it must have been this program that was hanging in the background.

Thanks for your help anyway
