  1. does anyone know how I can create a user account in Vista that does not have access to any of the docs/pics/ etc on the computer? basically like giving access to a new install?

    I assume you have read up on the info already available at User Accounts.

    Why would you want to have a new user who could not use the system... no documents... no pictures. Just to connect to the internet? There are better ways...

    Have you tried enabling the Guest account?

    I have set up a new user account,

    because i have to leave for a couple of days, and have no choice, and yes all i want them to have access to is the internet.

    thats what i thought, but then it seems to grant access to everything, im going to try it again, perhaps the settings didn't take when i checked the applicable programs.
