User Accounts on XP - Whats the point.

  Craigmave 21:49 20 Apr 2004

Hi, i have set up a few user accounts for various family members. My question is, what is the point in the file sharing options and password protection when all that you have to do is go into My Copmuter - C: - Documents and Setting - All Users or whoevers name is in that folder and access all there documents ???

Hmmmmm puzzled.

I beleive you can password protect each account so that it is not accesible to the other users.Regards

You haven't set it up properly, I'm afraid to say.

Got to agree with VoG™ here' you can set up an admin account which has all rights' or a "limited account" whom need the admin to give rights ie: to access docs ect. regards Mammak
