quizme1220 said:WinXP Home has only 3 types of user accounts Admin., Limited, and Guest. You can't assign Administrative privileges as you can in XP Pro. Your Guest Account should be off by default. When you boot into "Safe Mode", an administrative account that does not require a password is available ( and is displayed).
1. Admin. Account can create and delete user accounts on your computer.
2. Limited Account is best preferred by MS for the general computer user.
3. Guest Account is used for someone who has no user account/password on the computer.
If you want to assign another user with Administrative privileges you'll have to upgrade to XP Pro.
Ok .. seems like your Guest account is functioning normally.betty4651 said:I did have 2 user accounts with admin rights before but deleted one ages ago.
using the 1 account I now have I can switch on or off the guest account but when I try to log on as a guest I can not gain access to anything,
If I create an account with admin rights, when I try to use that, I get the message that I can only have basic access.( I also get a countdown of 20 seconds to decide if to accept ) No-one else has access to this computer so I don't know whats going on. P.S. I also have S.P.2 loaded.
