I just did a fresh install of XP on my computer. Right now im the admin installing all the drivers apps etc, but after i finish this i want an account that is really limited that i can use day to day for word, excel, and games, etc, the basic programs. how can i make this limited acount unable to install programs and stuff, but still be able to use the programs in the admin account? last time i tried this, the limited account could not access style xp and other programs that were in the admin acount... what can i do?
