Windows 7 Local Admin Rights
Posted on 2014-10-20
I am having an issue on a few of our Windows 7 PC that the domain user (using Server 2008) appears to have local admin rights when it shouldn't. The weird thing is that the same domain user on another PC does not have these rights which must mean that it isn't a server issue... I've created a separate domain user and have assigned it to each PC as a local admin so I don't have to assign admin rights to the user that the staff are logging in with but somehow this user does appear to have admin rights on certain PC's. The indication that the user appears to have admin rights is that when I select to "Run as administrator" it doesn't bring up the User Account Control where I would enter in the local admin credentials. This is what happens on most PC's. The affected PC's just run the (BAT file in this case) without the need to enter in any local admin credentials. The one weird thing though is that when I let it run this particular .bat file says that it requires elevation which seems to contradict the user from having admin rights. Any ideas?
