2008 R2 RDP Users added to Remote Desktop Users group and local admin group

By SysTek ·
We have setup a new 2008 R2 domain with a separate DC and TS server. I have verified countless times all permissions, local security settings and RDP configuration. I have an issue where a user who is a part of the local RDP group logs in just fine but after logging in they are added to the local Administrators Group. Can anyone tell my why this might be occurring? I am pulling my hair out trying to figure out whats up.

Is the user a member of the global Domain Admins group? Is there a group policy that's adding him?

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.
