I am new to Windows XP. Microsoft advises W2K users not to go online with administrator privileges. This is okay, because Power Users can do most of what needs to be done, so there is not a lot of logging off and on. (Am I right in thinking that it is okay for Power Users to go online?)
On my XP workstation, however, I am unable even to install Adobe's Acrobat Reader as a power user. Am I set up wrong or is this by design? If it is by design, how am I supposed to get any work done? Any time I need a download, I have to pull down the file, then log off, then log on as an administrator, then install the file, then log off, then log on again as myself. Does anyone else see this as a pain in the neck?
Am I missing something that could make my life easier?
