Hi EE,

For auditing purposes we need to run a report that lists users with administrator privileges on all our desktops. We currently use BMC Assetcore to run reports, it works great in detecting accounts within the USER folder under local users and groups, however it does not report on accounts that are located in the GROUP folder in administrators under local users and groups.

Is there a particular registry key that we can search on within windows 7 that would allow us to identify all the users within the GROUP administrator folder?

I'm not aware of such a reg key. But the system returns this information upon this command:

net localgroup administrators
