Does he have admin rights on his machine, there is the "prohibit access to properties for a LAN connection" policy

He has admin properties because it says cannot log on interactively and sign on network  if I change privileges.  Is this policy you talking about on XP computer or Server?

It is a user policy so it will apply to his user account.

I misunderstood you when you said it was a user property I thought you were saying it's specific to user account on XP but you are actually saying on the Windows 2003 server.
I will take a look

Yes create the GPO and have it apply to the user, you can use security filtering if you only want it to apply to one user.
