    The techs installed Sunrise on my machine at work, so i could help out at Support for two days. the program was installed, but they said i required Admin rights to use it, they went to give me Admin rights, and they found out that i was under the Admin group list, but the strange thing about it, is i haven't got any, i have no control panel, no properties for "my computer", nothing, and they cant figure out why :rolleyes: ? any ideas ladies and gentlemen...

    Cheers...

    Group Policy (If it is an AD Domain) is most likely being applied to a group that you are a member of. 8)

    If you are a member of another group that has 'Deny' applied then the Deny takes presidance over the allow for the admin group.

    It may be that when you join the firm you were added to a group, let's say for arguments sake - Customer Advisor, the deny option would have been enabled to stop all Customer Advisors in the company from being able to change the time/date etc. Now you have been added to the Admin Group that does not have the deny option enabled, the same as the rest of the tech guys (who by the way are not members of the Customer Advisor group). being a member of both group is the problem, the deny is called an 'explicit deny' in other words even if the other group (admin) says allow, the deny option take precidence over the allow.

    Hope this makes sense, if i'm wrong then i'm sure someone will put me right.

    purhaps just an oversite on the side of the person who created the account. Or maybe they simply copied another account that was an admin group member when they created yours ????????

    Who knows :D
