We do not want them to have power user rights either.

Subject: FW: Symantec LiveUpdate and User Rights on Win2000
We are currently in the process of removing Administrative rights from end
users. As you may already know, when someone logs in with only User rights,
they are no longer able to install AV definitions through the LiveUpdate
feature. This is one of the most crucial things we'd like our clients to be
able to access in case they are on travel or working remotely. A
Trojan/virus has less of a chance of being initialized under user rights,
but it is important that the user be able to maintain the definitions if
needed. Is there a tweak out there?
Thanks in advance.
