Multiple-users

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?)

I have a system with XP Pro installed with only 1 user with admin
privilages. I want to restrict my younger siblings from Installing OR
Uninstalling any kind of Games/Softwares or any other application. Moreover,
I dont want to create seperate account for everybody as it will create many
blank folders of My Doc, My Music, My Pic etc. It doesnt look nice & hard to
understand.

Simple. Whatever I install on the system should be available for everybody
but nobody can install anything without my will.

Is there any procedure available in Win XP....like Stop Installation Service
or restrict it by Password?

    This would defeat the whole purpose of using a multi-user operating system?
    Any change you make to the system can be undone by anyone else if they are
    able to log in to the same admin account that initiated the changes.
