  1. Hey :bounce: umm if anyone could give me any idea as to why i cant make another account which is limited that would be great, ive got windows xp pro, and when i go to make a new user account, it only lets me make admin accounts, i have recently acquired a new hard drive, but on my other hard drive the same thing happened, and i created two admin accounts (i had no idea wat i was doin) and yep it deleted the first admin account that was on there, so i have kept to the one account on this hard drive, but i wish to make a new account but under the limited type so that i dont lose any information already dl'd onto my admin account... :angel:

    Any suggestions, ideas or solutions , or even a hello would be great

    Hello. I think I know your problem. First create a new user account. Make is an Administrator and select to use all your currant files in that system. Then log in to the new place, and try making a new user. It should let you do a limited account.
