For the most part everyone is a local admin.  We have had a small
company mentality for quite a while, but now we have grown pretty
rapidly over the last few years, and now are getting a larger profile in
the industry, so we wanted to lock down our pc's and not let users do
that much.  So one of the steps is not giving them local admin rights to
their pc's.  So what is the Group Policy Preferences'?  Is that an add
on program or snap-in?  And can it be added after having a Group Policy
already in place?

Yes, this is a perfect job for Group Policy Preferences' Local Users and
Groups feature if you have rolled out GPP. If you haven't then you would
probably have to use a computer startup script to do it. Is the local
user account different on every machine?

I am looking for a way to change the local user account type for our
computers.  Right now we have them as local administrators, but we want
to change that to just a local user.  We have around 250 computer, so I
don't want to have to do it manually.  Is there a way to do this with
Group Policy?
