I have recently just bought a dell computer with windows XP SP2. I want to make a user account for my roomate so that we can both have different backgrounds. My problem is that when i started her new account up she don't have all the same programs like aim, file sharing, and music files i downloaded. I don't understand the point in downloading the software 2 times on my computer and taking up more space on my computer. Is there anyway of having the same files but just having different settings on each account?

You can make changes in there for what icons show up on the desktop for all users as well as share documents.
