Power Users

By Blue screen ·
I work for a company that has 250 windows xp computers and they are all logging in to one doamin controller.
I want to make all the users power users on the local machine but i don't want to go to each machine to do it.

How can i make it happen in Active directory?

Can i ask what you want to stop them from doing because i thought that power user was a local thing, also power users can make system wide changes and install programs. Is that what you want?

From AD I'm not sure if its possible but you can do this remote, using "Computer management" tool from Control panel\Administrative Tools.

I recomend you to thinking again if you want this.
Very soon you will have a lot of problems.
How many people are in your IT team? Are you ready to support 250 PCs/problems each week?
