It's not an "all or nothing" restriction -- for example: you can allow a particular user access to your wallpaper settings but not allow him to change your screen saver. You can also assign separate system profile folders to each user, providing each with his own custom desktop. You can additionally: disable Start menu items, hide your drives, disable the DOS prompt, hide desktop icons, and much more. You can even set an access timer for each user (when and how long access will be allowed) and allow access only to programs on your personal computer that you place on an accessibility list. It allows you to manage CD-ROM usage. You can create the CDs List and set what CDs the user can access. New powerful feature "Folders Guard" can help you keep your files protected.
