    Hey Guys,

    I'm having a fairly similar issue to this one. My boss at work (who is completely computer illiterate) decided to install Norton Internet Security on his own. And now the HotelGuest account which is a Limited User account can't access the internet at all. I have tried serveral solution on my own - uninstall NIS, delete user account and then recreate it, reinstalled NIS and triple checked NIS user settings to insure account was active and allowed Internet access, I even tried the one suggested here, which caused an odd occurence. Once the Limited account is changed to Admin the internet works and once its changed back it stops again, and since this is a public computer leaving it set to Admin(my boss's suggestion) is completely out of the question unless I want to spend 10 hours a day cleaning up Porn, P2P appz, and otherwise "Duct Taping" this POS back together. :D

    Any ideas that may help with this issue are great appreciated and welcome.
    Thanks in advance,
    Arminius

    I've split your post into it's own thread, since we like to have one problem per thread. :)
