    Hello,
    I am having two problems that I cant seem to solve. The first problem is on a computer which has xp home and 3 user accounts. The problem is that only some programs are working on the user accounts but all the programs work under the administer account. So my question is how can I get to work under the user accounts. When they were installed the box was check to let everyone that uses the computer to access the program. The other problem I am having is also with xp home. In my office I have 7 computers and they are all network. This might need to be in the network forum but hopefully some one here can help me. If not I will post it in the network section. The problem is that all the computer connect to the server except for one. I get a message saying that the computer has its max number of connections. If I turn 1 of the computers off then it connects with out a problem. Is there some way I can make them all work. Thanks, any help will be very grateful..

    Not sure on your second problem, but for the first one, I guess you could try setting user accounts up as Power Users. Some software just won't work unless a user is a 'Power User'. I think an example is MusicMatch Jukebox. That would never work for my users unless they were a Power User, no matter what the security permissions on the MusicMatch directory were.

    There are a lot of software packages out there that just don't work properly unless the user is set up as an admin of the local machine.
