    OK, I know it shouldn't be done and I shouldn't bother, but how can I have users with different levels of security in XP Home?

    My options now are

    Administrator or Restricted

    thats good and all but my client wants to set his son as restricted but then he can't run pre XP computer games.

    I have tried running them in windows 95, 98 2000 whatever compatability modes to no result.

    have also tried hacking the boot ini to let me boot up in safe mode and changeing the folder permissions for that user but this also does not work.

    it is thus very annoying that only the Admin users can play these old games and not 'restricted' users any advice?
