I have an Administrators acct on win xp and I have another limited account also. How if possible can i stop access to some programs or exploring the c: drive and deleting files

Depends on what version of XP it is

I have win xp with sp2 on it

  mattyc_92 17:46 04 May 2005

I mean XP Pro or Home?

  lanzablue 17:48 04 May 2005

XP Home

Then probably not, but you could try this.... NOTE you need to boot into safer mode to use this for XP Home

Right-click onto a folder or file and select properties.... Now select "secuirty".... Now you need to edit the "permissions" for this...

you might be able to get some "third party" programs.... Do a google search on this question:

"Windows XP Permissions"

and see what comes up... You may want to word it differently to get better results
