Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - 823659 [1]

This article describes incompatibilities that may occur on client computers that are running Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows XP Professional, or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 when you modify specific security settings and user rights assignments in Windows NT 4.0 domains, in Windows 2000 domains, and in Windows Server 2003 domains. By configuring these settings and assignments in local policies and in group policies, you can help tighten the security on domain controllers and on member computers. The downside of increased security is the introduction of incompatibilities with clients, with services, and with programs.

This article contains examples of clients, of programs, and of operations that are affected by specific security settings or user rights assignments. However, the examples are not authoritative for all Microsoft operating systems, for all third-party operating systems, or for all program versions that are affected. Not all security settings and user rights assignments are included in this article.

This KB article came across one of the list serves that I am on. Very useful information written in a very accessible manner. Check it out.
