Locked

Lockdown in XP Home?

By stultir ·
does anyone know of a way to lock down individual user accounts under XP home so as to allow access to only certain programs - or is this an 'upgrade to XP-pro' issue.

Cheers

I could be wrong, one idea might be, when you install a program using the administrator account, you get a radio button at some stage that askes if the program could be used by "administrator" only or "everyone who uses the computer". Another idea could be to remove the shortcut to the program from the user's startup.? Hope these ideas can help.

I believe that if you log-in under a computer-administrator, you can go into control panel and under user accounts. Change the type of account from administrator to regular user.

Hope this helps.

XP Home doesn't have the capability to do this on it's own. You could get EXELock and password protect any executable file you want. Check it out here:

A nice little program that can be used to lockdown virtually anything.. even to the point of using XP for till systems.
