Administrator and Limited Accounts???

My question is fairly simple. What are all the differences between the two account types. Is it just that administrators can change passwords and accounts and things like that or is there more? Also, what I mainly want to know is if there is a way to keep Limited User Account users from getting into the Hard Drive and folders and things like that? Thanks.

So how do you keep people out of your hard drive and crap?

Just so that you know... it's just this one computer. It's not a network. I have 4 accounts on here. Mine is the administrator. I want to make it where my account is the only one that change access the hard drive. I tried going into sharing and the "Make This Folder Private" was disabled.

This part of that article still applies:
Go into Folder Options and uncheck "Use Simple File Sharing".
That will allow you to do your thang no problemo :D . Let me know how you get on. (oh, didn't mean to sound curt in my posts. just reread them and they look that way - not intentional)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
