hi all, i use windows xp pro.

i am the administrator of the computer and there are other users with admin Privileges.

My problem is that the other users keep changing all the passwords to other user accounts and mine included.

Is there anyway that i can put a password on the Computer Mangament program. When they click ok, they are prompted with a password in order to update a users profile data? If so, how can i do this. Any other suggestions will be much apricated.

thanks, Athlon_xp2100

i would say don't make them admins if they find it funny 2 change your password.

i dont no if you can set a password because the whole idea of being an admin is that u can change outher ppls passwords without having 2 know them.

Why not make them power users and not Admins? Or you can create a new usergroup and give that group the privleges they need. Then add those users to that group and remove them from the Admin group.

I would not say this is the whole idea of being an Admin.

RabidPenguin i know it's not. i'm just sayin that is 1 of the reasons there are admin acounts...so admin can change passwords etc + restrict outher users.

idealy there should only be 1 main admin acount. all outher users should be in seperate groups so they can be crontrolled on what they do (by the main admin) such as changing passwords etc.

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
