    Role Permissions
    Administrators Can do almost anything. The things they can do no others can include loading and unloading device drivers, manage security audit functions, and taking ownership of files and objects.
    Backup Operators Can log onto the computer and run backups or system restores. You may wish to put someone into this group if you would like them to perform backups but not have complete administrator privilidges. Backup operators can also shut down the system; but, cannot change security settings.
    Guests Minimal access to resources. Creating user accounts for occasional users might be safer than guest accounts.
    Network Configuration Operators Can manage network configuration with administrative type access. They can modify network and dial up connections.
    Power Users Can create new printer and file shares, change the system time, force the system to shutdown and change priorities of system processes. They cannot run backups, load or unload drivers, or take ownership.
    Remote Desktop Users Have the right to log on remotely.
    Replicator Enables your computer to receive replicated files from a server.
    Users Can run programs and access information, shut the computer down, and access data over the network. They cannot share folders or create local printers.
    HelpServicesGroup Group of users for the Help and Support Center.
    IIS_WPG This group is only available if you have installed IIS (Internet Information Services). A member of this group can manage the IIS web server (not content).
