I have five account users on my home PC, one is the
administrator and the rest are family members. The
problem is that only my desktop account allows internet
access, everyone else's account desktop doesn't. This
appears to be indedendent of any parental control
settings I install. How can I get every account set up so
each desktop has internet access?

While logged on with the working Administrator account, Control Panel>
Network Connections. Double click the icon for the internet connection. On
the screen that appears, move the dot from "for me only" to "all users on
this machine."
