User account

  tonyq 11:11 07 Jun 2006

I have set up a new user account in Win xphome.

1.When using this account I can log on to the internet,view web pages,but find I am unable to search for anything eg while on the Google page,anyone any ideas why I cannot search.I can search from the other user accounts.

2.Is it some how possible to be able to drag and drop files from one user account to another user account.

1. I'm not sure.

2. Yes, provided neither account has privacy enabled on its user folders. If it does, use Shared Documents (in My Comp). This is the documents folder for Docs and Settings\All Users.

What happens when you try to search?

  tonyq 15:48 07 Jun 2006

in short nothing,which ever programme I use to search with, pages load to search nothing happens.What I cannot understand is why I can use search engines on other user accounts.Forgot to mention am using I.E6 with NIS

Oh.... NIS. Possibly to blame? Not sure. Got rid of it myself many years ago!

What about other browsers; are they affected in the same way?

don't know,only use I.E. Thought it may be something to do with firewall,but I think that would effect all users.
