Hi - does anyone know how to return xp home to its origional state where all user settings are the same without a clean install?

"all user settings are the same".....in what way?

to be able to install/delete any program without going through safe mode as administrator and be able to alter settings in norton internet security as any user

What accounts have the users been assigned? XP Home has a lot less options than Pro but I thought that Home logs users on as members of the Owners (Pro's admin eqiv) local group and they have rights to install software and modify the system

i've now found after a few hours that it's norton causing a problem - thanks to spikeychris for interest - norton now being wiped and reinstalled .
