Hello ,

I am using XP Home SP2. I have already installed many programs to be
available to ALL USERS.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to set the Guest Account or a New User
I might set up, to only access some programs?



Regards,
Bob Brannon

I am no expert, but here is an idea. Since your program files are stored in
separate folders, go one-by-one to each program folder under \Program Files
(not subfolders) that you want to remove access privileges from, and remove
all access privileges from "GuestAccount". There is no need to check Deny.

Do not perform this for the Users Group. Replace "GuestAccount" with the
name of your Guest account. If you did not install the programs in \Program
Files, then use the name of the directory where you installed the programs,
in place of \Program Files. If you do not know how to find access
privileges, then respond back here.
