    i need to "administrate" my pc a litle better.
    eg. not allow the family account to access/see certain folders/programs such as control pannel and other such tools
    only allow guests to view the net and restricted proggies such as a few games

    any1 know how to do this/ a freeware program to do it on?


    BTW: this is all on 1 pc, and it is not on a network

    well, if you are running the NTFS file system, you get to set the security for basically everything on there.. files, folders, etc...

    Dunno what operating system you are using, but 2000/XP are the only two decent OS's that support NTFS. Also, in there somewhere, is the ability to hide all the options you don't want people seeing, like control panel, display settings etc..
