I have added a user account to a Global group, and twice I have found the next day, that the account has been removed from the group.  I have Auding enabled, and have found the Event ID 633....

Event ID:      633
Event Time:      9/16/2010 8:21:18 AM
User:      NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:      Pri-DCSVR00

I am lost by the "User" that is removing the account from the Group, that user being "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM".  Is there a way to find out who or why this is getting removed?

It is possibly being removed by a group policy.

I'd be leaning to a GPO as well, look in restricted groups.

Sorry it took so long to get back.  Had another administrator mucking around with group policy.  That was the fix.  Thanks.
