PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP Pro
Problem Application Name & Version: XP Pro
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Dell Dimension XPS-T500
Error Messages: n/a




I just switched to XP and I know there's information on my computer about admistrator/user functions, but as usual Microsoft has such a convoluted way of telling you something simple that I'm at a loss already.  Where can I find crisp, nuts-and-bolts instructions, without all that vague jargon you find in Microsoft's help files and their web pages?  Any help'd be great.  I want to set myself up as administrator and my son and my wife as users who won't have access to my programs, and who have to check with me before they download anything from the web. (That's right, I'm into CONTROL!!!:-X)  Also wondering, how can I have separate programs on my side, ie if I install a program just for my use, it still shows up in the users side, rigt? but can I get so they can't use it?  (Not that I don't trust them - it's just that I  have some heavy-duty media stuff and it needs to be separate - just like separate rooms in a house, everybody needs that.)
Thanks.Cool

Cool
Thanks for your help.  Always nice when someone has the information at their fingertips.  So much easier than losing patience browsing Microsoft's web rages - I mean, pages.
