How do I set up a limited rights user account for my employee and a administrator acct for myself on the office computer.i have K-9 web protection in my office and want to stop him from downloading...


First, you have to log in as the administrator. Then you can go under control panel. There, you should find a User Accounts area. You can create an account with limited rights from there. Make sure that if your employee knows your admin password, you change it.

Help needed to become a computer administrator


To get into the administator acount, press f8 repeatedly on startup, until an option screen appears. select safe mode, as this is the only way to get into the admin acount on xp. It may prompt for a password, which is the admin password you typed on setup. From the admin acount, you can go into user accounts, and make your normal acount admin.
Hope this helps,

It is a simple matter to add an administrator account to your computer provided you are already logged in as an administrator. If you are logged in as an account created as "limited",as many guest accounts are, you do not have the authority to create an administrator account.Provided you are already an administrator and only want to add a new account follow these steps. From the start button, go to control panel, then user accounts. Click on add account, create a name, click on administrator and just follow the prompts.
