Hi all,

I have Windows XP home edition with 5 user profiles for the various members of my family.

I usualy install programs using my administrator account. The problem occurs when other members of the family, using their user profile, want access to these programs, particulary games. Usually, they can't access the programs (even though using 'my computer' they can see the files and launch .exe files)

How do I get round this problem? It is even stranger as some programs are accessible, whilst some are not - weird eh?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Matt.
