Limited User Account

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by NegativeFactor, Jul 17, 2002.

  1. I have created a limited user account on my machine, it says in the information on limited accounts that the user should only see there own document. Why is it then that this limited account user is able to go into the documents of any other person on the computer and view the files?

    any ideas?

    In XP, by default, restricted users have read access to certain files. They can not modify anything though. This default comes from the fact that XP shares a lot of files. To remove their access, simply change the security settings on the folder that you don't want them to view.
