After I install XP SP2, Domain users can not execute iexplore.exe, even
though they are a member of local power users.

If a user click Explore icon, he gets an error message that indicates he
does not have a right to execute Explore.

I have to give the user an administrative previlege in order to run Explore.

What kind of chages does SP2 makes on local security setting to prevent
domain users using Explore?

For what it' worth, a few days ago a website tried to install
"iexplore.exe" as an Active X control. SP2 blocked it, and I didn't
choose to allow it to be installed.

But I did think that the whole thing was a bit weird. Isn't
iexplore.exe the file that launches Internet Explorer? If so, why
would a website be trying to install it as an Active X control?
