I have several "Limited Account" in XP (Home edition) for other members of my family. IE6 does not work in Limited Account, however it works in "Admin" account. Firefox works in both Admin and Limited Account. Can anyone post a solution to make IE work in Limited Account? Thanks in advance.

Problem: Can not access internet using IE with Limited Account in XP Home Edition.

Hi Sumon1 and welcome to BleepingComputer.

I can't address your specific problem that you are having with IE6 but I would like to point out that if the Firefox works you may wish to stay with it. Firefox is a stand alone browser which adds a modicum of security to your system, IE is part of the operating system and is a big target because of that. Hopefully someone else will be able to answer your question regarding IE, I use Firefox exclusively.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

My guess...would be file corruption in the limited account.

I just created and used...a limited account (IE 7) and had full access and operability related to the Internet.
