    Hi all,

    I'd like to create a User Account on my computer that is completely blank in that it does not have access to programs, files, etc. from other accounts. I would like for it to appear just as my computer did when I first got it. Is this possible?

    THank you

    Start > Control Panel > User Accounts and click on New user. Make it a limited account.

    But it will still have access to the Start Menu and any programs, utilities and files that don't require Administrator or Power User privileges.
