xp administrator rights

Guest

I need to know how to establish administrator rights to a user on a XP
machine that has loged onto a domain. This user has admistrtive rights if she
logs on to her machine but not if she logs on to the domain. She needs
adminstartive rights to her machine. The strange thing is when she is loged
onto the domain, if she checks the local userrs and groups, she is listed as
a user WITH adminstrative rights. If she checks the user accounts from the
control panel she is told "You must be a a member of the administrators group
on THIS computer to open user accounts..." There appears to be a
contradiction in the op system as to what her rights are!! The net result is
she cannot load a program she needs installed. I would appreciate any help on
this problem someone can come up with.
Thanks, Dutch

Add the user's *domain* account to the local Administrators group.
(Your network/domain administrator can provide the precise instructions
for doing so.)
