This user right determines which users can dynamically load and unload device drivers or other code in to kernel mode. This user right does not apply to Plug and Play device drivers. It is recommended that you do not assign this privilege to other users.
Assigning this user right can be a security risk. Do not assign this user right to any user, group, or process that you do not want to take over the system.
Default on workstations and servers: Administrators.
Default on domain controllers:
Do not assign the Load and unload device drivers user right to any user or group other than Administrators on member servers. On domain controllers, do not assign this user tight to any user or group other than Domain Admins.
If you remove the Load and unload device drivers user right from the Print Operators group or other accounts you could limit the abilities of users who are assigned to specific administrative roles in your environment. You should ensure that delegated tasks will not be negatively affected.
