    Hi All,

    I have many laptop users in the company. We have a default domain policy for
    all the domain users, disallowing to install any softwares on their pc. Now
    since some of these laptop users need access only to install the required
    softwares whenever they need to, i want to create a policy for those users to
    have Local Power Users Group rights which i guess would be enough to install
    most of the softwares.

    I tried to create a policy using Restricted Groups. But how can we add
    "Members of this group" in a way that only the user who logs in will be added
    to the Power Users group ? If i create a Global Group of few users and add it
    to same then, all those users would have full access to each others laptops
    internally !!

    Please guide. Thanks,

    A number of separate things.
    Power User will only work for some software not all. There is no "Not an
    admin but can install software" capability.
    As you say, a Restricted Groups policy will allow all members of the group
    to be Power Users of all laptops in the scope of the policy.
    To do what you want you need to do it manually, or to have a script with a
    list of users and their laptops.
