removing control panel and display options

  silliw 16:03 12 Oct 2003

I now have six users on our home desktop running win xp. Every time I manage to log on to the system, I find that someone has changed a setting or adds a new wallpaper or screensaver. Eventually at this pace the machine will be full of rubbish.
Is it possible to remove control panel and display options from certain users, and how can i do it.

many thanks

Windows XP Pro allows you to do this, i'm not sure about XP Home. If you have set up user accounts then go into the accounts and change the settings for each account under their security policy.

Set their accounts to "Limited" and keep yours as "Administrator"

Also password protect and "make Private".

Start, Control Panel, User accounts.
