JSI Tip 2101. CAUTION when upgrading your W9x clients to Windows 2000.

Unlike upgrading from Windows NT, when you upgrade from Windows 95 or Windows 98, all your users are automatically added to the local Administrators group.

Microsoft did this because the users had full access to local resources when running under W9x.

You can remove them from the local Administrators group and add them to the local Users group.
