Password Question

  Dorkins 08:09 09 Jun 2008

I am running Windows XP and would like to know if i could setup the computer so that a password (besides a user's account password), would have to be used before any software could be installed.

I don't believe it is possible on the home version; XP Pro will allow you to use the Group Policy Editor to prevent software installation.
