OK, we are getting somewhere (not sure where though ;-) )

I don't get anything when I try to get Administrators info either, so 
don't worry about it.

so, you have a user in AD that does have a 'uidNumber', does Domain 
Users have a 'gidNumber', if not give the group one.

After that, does 'getent passwd <username>' return anything, if not 
check that the 'uidNumber' & 'gidNumber' are both inside '2000-40000'

Is the W7 client joined to the Domain, try leaving the domain and rejoining.
