JSI Tip 9467. The Power Users group on my Windows Server 2003 is empty?

Previous versions of the Windows NT-based operating system included the Authenticated Users group in the Power Users group.

The Authenticated Users is like the Everyone group in Windows NT, except it does NOT contain anonymous users or guests, and unlike the Everyone group, it is not by default used to assign permissions.

For additional information, see Microsoft Technet article Differences in default security settings.
