User Permissions???

By cabledude ·
I recently upgraded from Windows 2000 Professional to Windows XP Professional and under the user permissions it only gives me "Limited" or "Administrator". Now I am not running a Domain but I am on a rather large workgroup with anywhere from 15-50 hosts at a given time. I am not running any servers as of yet but I would like to limit the users ability with a little more than just the 2 options. Does anyone know how to set up WinXP so that I can get the same kind of User permissions options thatyou would get in Win2K.

Thanx in Advance

User Permissions???

Hi,

You can still set any user options you want under XP. If you go into Admin Tools / Computer Managment you will see "users" in the snap-in. From here you can create groups and alter user rights just like under 2000. When you first install XP it uses a stupid user log-in system. To get the above options you may need to go into control panel under "User Accounts" and click on the "Change the way users log on and off."
