I have several WinXP PCs and on some of them the User logon cannot
click on the system tray clock/calendar, and/or cannot change the
screen saver power (turn monitor off after _____) settings. I don't
know where to look to change these permissions. I've tried someone's
suggested Registry tweak, but that didn't change anything. I've looked
thru the the Admin Tools - User Rights, but I don't see anything that
would have anything to do with the above.

Hi,

Limited user accounts will not have permissions to change those sorts of
system settings.

On most of my other XP machines they do indeed have the ability to change
this. But I can't figure out where those things are controlled.
