i have windows xp pro and my account is administrator account, i have other users that are "limited users" however, the account is too restrictive. is there an option to allow the accounts to pe "power users" but not addministrators?

when i go to control panel - the only option for account types is limited user or administrator.

Yes.... Go to "Start-Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Computer Management->System Tools->Local Users and Groups->Users" and double-click onto the user account. Now click onto the "Member Of" tab and click "Add".

Click onto "Advanced->Find Now" and highlight "Power User" and click OK.

Now highlight "Users" and click Remove.
