Moving from XP to 7 is a great time to enhance desktop security. One way to do this is to remove users from the Local Administrators group. USMT can automate this task!
Add the following XML to the config.xml file:
<ProfileControl> <localGroups> <mappings> <changeGroup from="Administrators" to="Users" appliesTo="AllUsers"> <include> <pattern>*</pattern> </include> </changeGroup> </mappings> </localGroups> </ProfileControl>
This will move all users from the local Administrators group to the local Users group. Optionally, replace “Users” with “JunkUsers” or some other non-existant group and USMT will simply remove all users that existed on the old PC from the local Administrators group.
