    Have you tried setting NTFS permissions on your "C:\Program Files\Messenger" folder or perhaps even only on the "msmsgs.exe" file? Obviously you must have NTFS as your file system? Remove the "users group" and add only the users that you want to give permission to MSN Messenger. (right click file or folder > Properties > Security).

    Kind regards,

    You do NOT have to "share" the folder or executable, you must set NTFS permissions (security tab) if you don't want (certain) local users to access the file / folder.

    Right click the file / folder you want to set NTFS permissions on > Properties > Security > remove the "Users" group and add the users you want to allow MSN usage.

    Hi speedrayo,

    Do you have WindowsXP Pro or Home edition? My following question will sound very silly, but could you please double check the drive is an NTFS partition?

    What does it say in Disk Administrator about your disk? NTFS? Healthy? (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Administrator)

    Do you have Simple File Sharing on or off? (Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > View > and under advanced settings bottom entry, "use simple file sharing"). If on try turning off and retry.

    Are you logged on as an a user with Administrative rights?

    Lots of questions from me, but no answers for now. Sorry.

    Kind regards,
    Willem Moolenaar

    "last weekend i format FAT32 switch to NTFS..."

    Did you do a "conversion" from FAT32 to NTFS or did you do a clean install on an NTFS partition? If you did a conversion you may have to reinstall WinXP so it can add the NTFS security options.

    Did you try turning off Simple File Sharing?

    Kind regards,

    Hi speedrayo,

    I am not familiar with setting permissions for Messenger they way you do. I would try to get the [Security] tab where it should be.

    Have you tried reinstalling WinXP over your current installation. Maybe it will pick up its on an NTFS directory, and add the NTFS Security options to your installation.

    Restricting access to MSN Messsenger will then be an easy task.

    Kind regards,

    eNuffSaid - I don't think His problem is restricting access to messenger. I think he's saying that the limited account users can't use it and he wants them to be able to.

    speedrayo - I had the same problem at one point. It happened when I installed an newer version of messenger from a file I downloaded instead of from the prompt I got from messenger saying that there was a new version.
    To fix the problem, I temporarily made the limited account users admistrators and installed messenger under their accounts and then switched them back to limited users. That cleared up the problem and they could use messenger again.

    Hope this helps.

    cruiser78,

    Thanks for pointing that out to me. Not familiar with that. Was wondering why our (speedrayo's and mine) discussion was going nowhere. ;)

    Kind regards,
