Desktop Profiles



In WinXP Pro running NTFS partition, How do I:?
Have each of my 5 users on a single PC have diffrent desktop and software installations?
I.E..... All Users have Winzip installed and Antivirus.
User A Has Imesh and Quake.
User B Has Microsoft Office and Nero Burning Software.
User C Has Quicktime, Imesh and Nero Burning Software

Ok, you get the idea. Each user will only see the software that they install.
With the exception of the Administrator. Anything admin installs, everyone gets. Service packs, Virus Definitions, Printers etc....

When I logged in as User C and installed Quicktime, it showed up on all the users desktops. Don't want that to happen.

Any Help??

Not many programs use the 'install for this user only' option, yet.

However, you could restrict access by right clicking the folder in Explorer, choosing properties, security tab, and denying executable access, etc.

Yeah, I'm bleeding. blah.

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
