Administrator on XP

  Stressed Mum 11:13 10 Nov 2008

I have just purchased a laptop for my daughter for Christmas. I would like to be the computer administor but do not want to have to set the user account password. In other words, when my daughter turns on her pc - can it show just her name and no other user account although she is limited? I need to be sure that she doesn't alter any settings or download 'stuff' that will bog everything up... The kids desktop at the moment is set for Administaor and 3 other users - and as this laptop if just for her - I wouldn't want all the fuss signing in and out all the time.
