Cloning a user but altering start up settings

  wednesday 13 18:51 08 Mar 2007


I am trying to create to users on xp home, 1 online and 1 offline. the online version will have all start up items, like ant-viruses and firewalls, and the other will just start up with the essential drivers for entertainment and some work. I tried creating a new user, i got it ok but need to create new shortcorts like the other user, but when i change the start up on the offline user, it changes the online user.

so is there a way to:

1. clone a user, or something close enough, or

2. have a different start up for each user

Create the 'offline' user as a Limited account.

Then ensure that all the programs which you don't want the offline user to access are moved from C:/Documents and Settings/All Users/Start Menu/Programs to C:/Documents and Settings/Online User Name/Start Menu/Programs
