I'm setting up a new Dell Vostro 1014 with Windows 7 Professional 32bit preinstalled. I was able to connect it to my company's domain and log in as the domain admin.
I logged in as this computer admin and went to users accounts. I added the domain user there and they are part of the administrator group.
I clicked on the advanced tab up top and went to "advanced user management". I clicked groups and opened up "administrators". I added "domain admins", "domain users" and "domain\saleslaptop2" (the actual user).
I did the same by logging in as the domain admin.
I couldn't add a new folder for hijackthis in "program files" without getting an error. I can't add a folder in "c/users/saleslaptop2"
I found this thread: Domain users and the super admin account
I still have the issues. I couldn't install the accounting software by double clicking on the setup.exe on the network folder like I normally do. I had to right click and "run as administrator". I was able to get it to run, but it took FOREVER. It normally takes 5 minutes, I had to leave it going overnight. It seemed to keep freezing and took a long time when installing .net 1.1 (for my accounting software).
I can't seem to get the domain user to have administrative privileges. It went so smooth when I upgrade my Vostro 1500 from Win XP to WIn 7 Pro 32bit.
