Restoring Profile from Previous Admin to Non-Admin Account
We are running into an issue with Windows 7 where we restore a captured profile, of a user who previously had administrative rights, to a machine where they will no longer have admin rights. The problem is that the user can no longer access the C: drive, programs, etc. It appears that the profile is corrupt; however, if we add that user account back into the local admins group, everything returns to normal.
We restored user profiles to a fresh test machine with limited admin access and then logged in as the user. The problem persists and the users cannot access things properly.
We restored user profiles to a test machine where the user has logged into the machine BEFORE the profile restore (without admin rights) and after the restore, the user is able to function as a non-admin just fine.
Is some reg setting being transferred with the GSS captured user profile that is clashing with it's new restricted rights?
What could be the issue here?
