I put a new workstation in place on a windows 2003 standard edition network and now the user of the new pc canot install programs or updates unless he logs on as administrator. His old workstation did not have this issue. I have him set as a member of the admin group with full rights. What did I overlook?

Is the PC part of a Domain network?
Did you put his domain account in the local PC admin group?
With his domain account in the local admin group he'll be able to login to the domain and still have admin rights on the local computer.
