When I set my wife and kids up with Limited user account,
programms like Outlook and IE don't work. If I create
Administrator accounts for them everything is fine, but
that defeats the object of having separate accounts ie
ref security of my files. How do I get Limited accounst
to work properly?
Thanks in advance.

PS I am very tech literate and have spent ages on this
already - surely it can't be that difficult to get right?

In your Dial Up Settings, under administrator, make sure that

Save this user name and password for the following users:

Anyone who uses this computer.

Is enabled otherwise Limited users cannot use this network connection
hence problems with IE/Outlook etc.
