Windows 2000 restricted user

I have a Windows 2000 PC and am trying to set up a user on this machine. When I log in this user they are unable to see the C drive in my computer, they cannot go to control panel, they cannot right click my computer and see properties, they do not have the "run" option when they click on the start menu.

I have looked through the group policy on the domain controller and nothing appears to be configured. I made sure this domain user was in the administrators group on the local machine.

Anyone have any ideas on where I can undo hese security settings for this user?

  Hi Atomic75
        This is not something administrative right related. This should be GPO restrictions. Right-click the Organizational unit (OU) that the user is in, click properties and locate policy.
       Try logging on to a different computer with that user and see if policy still applies. If it doesnt apply on a different computer but still applies on that 2000 DC, I recommend changing profile folder name, an let the logon create a new profile and get the real policy

I just tried on a Windows XP pro machine and had simialr results. No run command, no C drive in my computer. I have quite a few other users in her OU so I would like to avoid deleting it if I can help it.

I just starting working with this company so i am unsure why some things were done the way they have been.

That did in fact work. there was some strange group policy settings pertaining to that OU. I looks like the users in that OU were there only for testing reasons. Thanks for your help.
