1 - NAV Corporate Edition has an option to show or not show symbol in
status tray. Use the Symantec Control Panel to make sure it is enabled
(I tend to make these wide choices by applying to the server so that it
propogates to workstations.

2 - Administators is a local group / Domain Admins is the domain group.
Don't know how you are doing the user group management, backend sam,
