Hi all.
I have a bandwidth sharing issue on my wifes XP Pro computer that she sometimes shares with her daughter (my stepdaughter, 17). Stepdaughter uses a guest account only. She chews through a massive amount of bandwidth each month (youtube, limewire, watchmovies etc), even when she has been asked nicely and not so nicely to reduce her usage etc. I have a WRT54G v2.2 running Tomato, and have already QoS'd her laptop significantly, which is why she is using her mothers computer. And yes, I know that this is a person issue rather than an IT issue.

However, I need to find a way to throttle the bandwidth available to the guest account ONLY. I don't want to affect her mothers account. I have spent hours on Google, and have looked through heaps of threads here too. I am the only IT savvy admin on the system, and am happy to install software to do the throttling.

Any advice on software that will allow me to limit one user account only on the XP Pro machine greatly appreciated. Thanks, Will
