Permission Required to View Process Image Detail


I am trying to put together a login script that will gather info about a user's login session processes using a command like this:

tasklist.exe /v /fo list

I would like for a standard AD domain user to display al list of processes on, and also what user owns them.  I am able to do this while logged in as a domain admin, but get incomplete information as a non-admin.  Specifically, it will only return "N/A" in the user name field where I would normally expect "DOMAINNAME\Username" attached to the process.  

I don't want to make everyone a local admin to make this work, so I am looking for a specific setting probably in the Local Security Policy either under User Rights Assignment or Security Options.  If anyone knows the setting, I can analyze is and decide if the reduced security is acceptable.

When running the same command as a domain user on a Windows XP Professional computer, it properly populates the user name field.  

Does anyone know the differences between the security in the two systems?
