The rights of the users on the network domain are reflected in the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry hive if they are user-specific, and in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE if they are to be applied to all the users. This
applies for all the users in a network domain, whether they are
Administrator group users, Restricted Users, Standard Users or Power
Users.

However, for restricted users that are created on the local machine,
and not on a network domain, the above mentioned registry hives do not
apply. I've seen this with one of my applications recently. I want to
know what registry hive stores information pertaining to such users.

Please clarify what it is you are after when you say "rights of the users"
