Answer

Do you have a token for that account? If so you can call GetTokenInformation with TokenInformationClass == TokenPrivileges. That will return the list of privileges associated with the token and whether or not they have been activated.

If the account isn't logged in and thus you can't get their token, it becomes much harder. You can't query for the privileges allowed for the account let alone the privileges that any of the account's groups bring into the token. You would need to logon the account to retrieve a token and then follow the previous advice.
