To strengthen security at our employment users are removed from Administrator and Power users groups if their applications do not require their presence.

Upon removal some users who would view the calendar via the system time clock are now unable to view giving a permissions issue.

Can we provide view only to the calendar via system time in Windows XP?

There is a Local Security Policy under User Rights Assignment that is called "Change system time" dont know if you need to have that allowed to be able to open the calendar/clock view in xp. At my current workstation i got Vista so can't check.

Forgot i had XP on laptop, tested it there and yes, if you have "Change system time" to disabled you can not view the calendar. Silly but thats the way it is. I dont see why they shouldn't be allowed to change the time anyways though. I think vista fixed this one, cause you only need to click once to view calendar, but click again to change time and date.
