JSI Tip 4718. You receive 'Add New Hardware' when you logon to Windows 2000?

When a non-administrator logs onto Windows 2000, they receive:

Add New Hardware
You must log on as Administrator to configure this new device.

This message may appear even though no new hardware has been added?

To workaround this feature, logon once as the local Administrator.
