I have a intranet site that the company uses but I was wondeing if there was a way to set restrictions on what people can do and see based on what their active directory is logged on as. Lets say the manager logs onto a computer can I make it so they have
access to pretty much everything but lets say a normal employee is logged into a computer can I have it so they can only have access to certain pages. I dont want to have a seperate log-in from the one used to log-in to the computer. Any help? Thanks

Sounds like you should use Windows Authentication and Roles. Take a look at this article from Microsoft which explains it further:

set authentication mode to Windows and create roles

But do i have to create roles if I just want to use the credentials they used to login to the computer? cause that would mean I would have to create a role for every employee again. Isnt there a way to allow access to certain files on the intranet site by
just checking who is the user that is logged in at this moment in time (Admin, user, trustedinstaller) and then allowing access if they meet the requirements?

Yes, you can get and use roles from active directory. Take a look at this article which might help you:
