I've hemmed and hawed about this for sometime at work. On one hand giving admin privileges (to that computer not the domain) to the individual user makes my life easier. I can walk up to the computer, install or change anything I want, then walk away. With Power Users, I have to goto the control panel, click users and passwords, change the level of the user to admin, logoff, login with their name and password, make any changes, go into the control panel, turn it back to power users, logoff. I know this isn't for EVERY thing you do, but some program require admin access to save specific program settings (like outlook wanting to be the defualt manager for example). Am I just clueless or just the only one who finds this a pain in the ass?
