Limited Account Restrictions

My Limited Account does not recognise some hardware & software that the Adsministrator Account recognises. The scanner and built in DVD writer are two, and some software does not recognise that I have already registered. What do I have to change to keep these accounts in plonker?

Sorry Jackcoms - could you help me if I said synchronised?

Log in as Administrator and try moving the shortcuts for the printer; scanner, software etc from:

C:\Documents & Settings\Administrator's Name\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

to

C:\Documents & Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Thanks Jackcoms, but having problems finding hardware in the Startup. I'm stopping for tea now, but will try again later.

Lots of work over the weekend, but still no joy. Thanks for your help though.
