Is there a way where i can create a restricted account like the GUEST one, So that my kids cant install new programs and things like that?
Why does XP SP2 enable the Guest login when the Guest account shows disabled in the Control Panel | User Accounts, but does not allow a Guest to actually log in to the XP system? The failed attemps show up in the Windows XP SP2 Event Viewer - Security log, and there has been many of them on my XP SP2 systems. The Windows XP SP2 Event Viewer - Security log also shows many access logins from a Microsoft Remote Services account. Why? Windows XP SP2 Security Center shows the following: Firewall - ON Automatic Updates - ON Virus Protection - ON If I do my second XP SP2 computer and try to access my first XP SP2 system, the Guest login prompt shows where the Guest username is grayed out and I enter a password. I found that the Guest password "password" worked for a while until a Security log entry shows an update on the Microsoft Remote Services account. Does the Guest account in XP SP2 have a security flaw?
Hi there, In windows XP is there a way to restrict access to certain programs for certain users? Thanks
I created an additional account in the Guest accounts group in WinXP Pro. I want to be able to stop the account from downloading files, installing and removing programs, and affecting of other user accounts desktops. How do I do this? Thank you in advance of any responses.
