Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
How do I go about adding a password on my work computor so that no one else can use the computor I have windows xp prof and I am on a network.
Right click on My computer, then select manage, then click on Local Users and groups, then over on the right double click on users folder, then right click on a blank spot under the last user listed and select New User. Under the user name field type in what you want to call the user. Full name and description are optional and are not necessary to fill out. Type in the pw twice in the password field.
Uncheck the "User must change password at next logon" checkbox and then click on "Password never expires" checkbox. Then click on Create. Now select the new user and right click on it and select properties. Click on the member of tab and click on the add button. Type in administrators and click on ok.
You now have a new user that is an administrator that only you can use. Beware once you do this your desktop icons and favorites WILL NOT TRNASFER TO THE NEW USER. You can manually copy these over by poking around under "c:\documents and settings\(*example user)\desktop or \favorites \my documents etc" and copying to the same location to your new user account.
