User Accounts

In XP I have created different user accounts for myself and my kids. However, many things that are done to the desktop by one user is replicated across the other accounts - e.g. deleting shortcuts, moving icons etc. Is there a way to prevent this? Many thanks & Merry Christmas!

Have you set all accounts as Adminastrator's ? this may the problem.

This is what the accounts can nd cannot do. click here So i think it depends on whether the changes are seen as system changes or not.

Only my account is administrator, the others are limited. The link by anskyber is a lot of reading, so I will probably find the answer there. Thanks
