Hi theere. I am wanting to add a new user (or 2) to Windows XP. I want the users to ont be able to access to some folders. I have done this, but was wondering if it sould cause any problems with programs running? (the folders I have dinied access to are 'My Documents > Gavin (my user name - my donuments I assume?), and my own file on C drive. Also, will the other users be able to run programs which another user is already running? And can I change settings in a program, and have them so the settings only affect one user (I want Kazaa to dowlnoad to different locations for different uses)? And also will all users be able to run all programmes? And, my final question, is any extra memory used up if there are lots of users? Thanks a lot in advance, sorry about the number of questions!, Gavin
ANOTHER POINT - after setting up the accounts to check something, I have realised that if I log out (switch user), when I log back in the internet connection has been disables - is there a way of stopping this? Thanks again
OK thanks people, I am using XP Home (I think), although it let me choose for people not to acess a file when I righ clicked, selected propertise and chose the appropriate setting. Now just the other quiestions please!! Thanks a lot
spikeychris, !WOW! where did you pull that one from?, good advice m8.
most people i know who file share use Kazaa lite from the same site as Kazaa, its supposed to be bug & virus free, i wont have Kazaa anywhere near my system though after trying it and getting caught out. as spikeychris says be careful.
Kazaa used to be one of the most prolific sites for bugs and viruses you name it, but they are starting to clean up their act.
I'm with paperman27 on this one though, and wouldn't have it any where near my systems.
Your last question I take it that you are only talking about one computer here. It all depends on what they save to their profiles. If you have a user that stores digital photgraphs on your hard drive then they will take up more than another user who just saves documents in Word.
