services for differant uses

By Billyd59 ·
I have Windows XP pro. I have 2 users on my system. I would like to know how can I turn off a service for one user and not the other ones? For example I want to turn off Telnet for one user and not the other one. What I am really tring to do Is I am setting up one user just for games on my laptop and have the least services running?

When you share something there is a box down the bottom that says words to the effect "Depends on Password" just tick this and give it a password that allows that connection but you then limit the password to the end users who without the password can not use that connection.

That can apply from individual folders to printers.

on your desktop right click my computer icon and choose the manage option . there you will see the services at the bottom . if you want a rigid control . go through each service and go intp its properties with right click . there the second tab next to general will allow you to issue the control you want by clicking .

ok. more help . either from the start button do a run the run box write services.msc
OR right click on my computer icon and choose manage option and get to the services and programmes. this is at the bootom . double click services and choose the service from the right . right click on it and go into the properties of the service . the first window is the general definitions . choose the log on tab . here in the menu click on the following account . either click the browse button or write the users name .Beneath it there is a list where you can lock or enable that services for that account . the rest should be self explanatory and repetition of previous services.
