Make sure the user did not remove the Domain Admins from his local Administrator group. If the users are local admins are their machines they can do this. I have seen some people in the past do this as a countermeasure to avoid Admins from trying to monitor their usage.

Also check and make sure the simple filesharing is disabled.
