    Look into "Restricted Groups"

        Have you checked the policy is being applied (RSoP)?
        Have you rebooted the client computer?

          Remeber that the user will not be set as a local administrator when you look. Only the group will, and to see the group(s) that are set as a local administrator you have to look in the "Local Users and Groups" in Computer Management (Right click on "My Computer" and then click on "Manage".
          Two things:
          1) If I wrote something wrong please please please let me know. I want to know ESPECIALLY if I am wrong.
          2) I have a tendency to write things that are misconstrued as being agressive or not so pleasant. That is not my intent.
