  • Admin Rights

    I am set as an Admin user in Windows 7 as well as part of the Administrator group through active directory on our Win 2008 r2 server yet on my workstation I cannot do things like delete the browsing history in IE, it's grayed out.

    Any ideas?

    Check applied policies, local and group, as they can over-ride default settings even for administrators

      hmm check on client or server? Also, not exactly sure what you are referring to.

          And you have checked the settings in the relevant policies?

            I believe I have. I am not super savvy with Active Directory but I've checked what groups that my username that I use to log on my workstation to the domain has and I am part of the built in admin group. I have also check on my workstation that my user account type is Administrator. Is there somewhere else I should be checking?

              Have you checked the actual settings applied in the policies?

              Have you tried logging onto a different workstation to see if the issue replicates

                Check you Group Policies as Tom has mentioned as those settings are controlled there.

                To check these you need the Group Policy Management console feature turned on.

                  Again I don't know Active Directory well so could you explain what exactly I should check in the group policies? I am looking at the group policy management console on the server but I do not see anything that allows me to see things about my groups.

                      Open GPMC.
                      Browse to User Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance

                      All of your settings should be in there but you will need to check all available policies in AD.
