Hi Everyone,

I am using Windows XP Media center edition. I think its similar to windows xp pro with added media features. Anyways I have 1 user account which is my account and its an administrator account. What I wanted is if anyone else log in my pc then he/she should not get persmission to view certain folders that I wanted. So I created another account with the name "User" and set it to limited account. Then I logged into my admin account and disabled simple file sharing. Then I right clicked on a folder and did properties. And in security I selected the user account named "User" and selected deny for most options (like modify, read & execute , read ) etc.

Now when I logged in thru account "User" then I am unable to access that folder. Thats okay and its what I intended. But the problem is when I login thru my own account (which is admin a/c) I also get the same error. If I double click on that folder it says access denied.

Now how do I fix this problem and achieve what I originally planned to do. I am myself now unable to access that folder thru my own admin a/c.

If anyone can help me I would be glad.

Thanks,
Gr
