    I installed Win XP Pro and created Power User account for wife and child. Now programs like Microsoft Picture It say they need admin privileges to run. Some childrens games also want admin privileges. I created these accounts so that wife and child would NOT be able to modify system files. How do I fix this without giving them admin privileges.
    Thanks
    Don
