    Hi

    I have 2 user accounts on my PC and I want to control what soft is available to which user. More specifically I want to control what programs/TSRs are loaded at logon for each of the users so I can control resources for the 2 users.

    I understand one approach (I'm happy if someone has other ways of doing this) is to install soft from the Administrator account and from there control which users have access to which programs and which ones load at logon

    How do I do this?

    What I am ultimately trying to achieve is a 2 state PC. One which is minimalist (ie maximum resources available to run programs with as little running at startup/logon as possible) and one online mode with the antivirus, soft firewall, utilities etc etc all running as normal

    The PC is not networked but I thought this forum best as this is a network admin kind of problem

    Thanks

    Hi

    You will notice all the newer programs will pop up a box on install saying "Would you like to make thgis program available to all users etc etc "

    which is what you need to achiev the above

    If you create a login script

    that gives you an idea

    Also

    Go to run and type controluserpasswords2

    and also

    go to run and tpe gpedit.msc
