I have XP Pro with two administrative accounts and one guest account. I can browse the internet from only one administrative account and cannot from neither another administrative account or the guest account. I was able to from all accounts but now all of a sudden I cannot without me making any changes.??
Any clues?
Thanks much in advance.

You can only have one admistrative account in XP. I would delete the second one, Start\Control Panel\User Accounts. Then you can set up another account, giving the permissions you choose. For security purposes, I would keep the Guest account turned off.

You can only have one true local administrator account.
But if this PC/LAPTOP is on a domain you can have several administrator accounts.

You can give administrator rights to all accounts (bad idea).
But making them adminstrator to all account be not really make them a true administrator, it just gives them the right to do administrator duties.

Good Luck
