    Hello,

    I'd like to know how i would go about setting up a program in XP (i.e ICQ) so that it will only operate in one profile (administrator). I have one other account set up but, at this moment, they are able to access all the programs I have installed.

    FYI: ICQ only initiates when i have connected to the web. This might mean i would have to do something a bit different......

    thanks

    Zach.

    Right clink the Start button and select Explore All Users. Drag and drop any application you don't want everyone to have from All Users to the Administrator Start menu.
