User accounts

  1. On my XP setup (SP3) I have 2 user accounts, mine with a password. Can someone tell me how to let the limited user access certain programs. For example, I have a set of children programs my sister plays with my niece. They can only play from the Administrator account, but I log them on when they do. I would like it if they could play from the limited account, so they don't have to rely on me to play. Could someone please educate me please.

    Thanks in advance

    Likely that the Limited Accounts were created AFTER the games were created.

    Usually, the installer(s) will ask "Install for this user only or ALL users?" and you
    click ALL.

    Uninstall the games (as admin), and reinstall -- it should workout for you.
    *IF NOT*, uninstall again and install in the Shared Documents Area :)
