    On Windows Vista and 7, there is a screen, which asks for an administrators authentication whenever something needs editing on the system (such as installing stuff). I have a GPO (group policy object) for all the workstations, and I've navigated to "Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment". Is there a setting that let's the specified users/groups authenticate on the Windows Vista/7 administrator screen (as described at the begining), without them actually being administrators?
