Your statement is unclear.

Are you saying when a user logs on the workstation on to the domain they are getting admin rights on the server
or
are you saying they get admin rights on the workstation?

I am sorry about being unclear initially. We have 12 guest accessible workstations on the network with a windows 2003 r2 server, and when the workstation in question is booted up for the first time in the morning, then it comes up as logging in with admin privileges on the workstation, thereby bypassing the guest only access set on all the other workstations. I am a volunteer helping out a local community organization and have good computer skills with installation and maintenance of systems, but admittedly am somewhat of a novice when it comes to windows servers. Also, I can follow detailed instructions when given. I just want to help them out as best I can since calling in a paid service is not in their budget. Therefore, I appreciate all help given. Thank you.

✔ Best Answer
No problem with the server. Its the autologon on the workstation that is the problem.

Here is how you remove autologon OR change it to just the guest account

method 2 should do that for you.
