    I'm not sure how you configured this, if you mean the Power Users group, as far as I know, in Windows Vista and later Windows operating systems, the permissions and rights that are associated with this group have been removed. Members of this group have no more user rights or permissions than a standard user account.
     
    To make Windows prompt you for permission or an administrator password before performing the task, you might need to configure User Account Control (UAC) feature:

    Let me know if this is not your case, then we will take a further look.
