Is there a way to configure a Limited User Account in XP (MCE in my case)? I've read that a limited account can help protect against infections but I've got several programs that do not function properly in a limited account. I know the computers at my college were not granted full administrative privileges, but I was still able to install applications. So that leads me to think there must be someway to configure each user beyond a limited account being on or off.

Thanks for your help,
Bug

Limited account won't protect yourself from any infections.
Limited account is designed so other users can't do certain things, you wouldn't like them to do.
You can't protect yourself from yourself :thumbsup:
