Permissions on powershell.exe (system32\WindowsPowershell) keep resetting

Hi all,


I'm probably doing something wrong but:

I have a group policy that runs a powershell script at start up.

At first it didn't run because the users in my domain didn't have permissions on powershell.exe in C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0.

When I add permissions (I don't remove any) to a user or a group it works but after a while the permissions are reverted back to SYSTEM & Administrators and the ones I have added are gone.

What am I missing?

Thank you,

use group policy preference to do so rather then start up scripts.
it should stick better then start up (once off) script
