I'm part of a computer intranet network (domain). For about 2 years now I have been using somebody else's network password and computer. In doing so I have installed much software from the internet and other sources in this computer. Recently I got word that my colleague will get his own new computer soon. I will continue working with this computer but with my own network access name and password. My question is, how do I transfer the settings and configurations that I have made so that I can continue to access them. I accessed this computer with my password and because of user settings the appearance of my desktop was very different. I need to have the same configuration that I had when I was using this person's network access password. How will I continue to access the settings under 'Documents and Settings'? Will any software installations be affected by the changeover? I need to keep all the software I have installed in this hard disk intact and accessible under my network password. Please help. Also, this person (whose password I had been using) belonged to the administrators group and I know this gave me the advantage of accessing more resources than I would have if he had belonged to the ordinary groups. Since my access will not be under administrators group, how will this impact on what I can access in this computer?
