I created a limited account but there are issues.
The issue is that I am unable to run PeerBlock automatically within the limited account. Well, I can run it but I have to use the "Run as" option which isn't an issue(well it kind-of is) on my own personal computer. However, this is a BIG issue since I want to set up a limited account on my sister's computer.
I figured out through trial and error how to set up things so that she can connect to the internet (because a limited account couldn't do that either). I did this by using the “manage” computer options and adding “networking”(can’t remember the exact wording right now) to her account access options group.
Using VMware I tried something similar to help with the peerblock issue and the only thing that helps is if I add “Administrative Privileges” to her access group. The up-side was that peerblock starts automatically like I want. The downside is that with those privileges she could accidentally screw something up and that has been known to happen especially when it comes to my sister.
I’ve read that the newer operating systems don’t have this issue but I have XP so I would like a work-around to this issue. I found a piece of software called PStools (from Microsoft), which will allow me to make a shortcut that she can click-on but the problem with that is that she won’t remember to do that.
Is there a way to give administrative privileges to a certain piece of software without all this hassle???
Another question if I decide to just add Administrative privileges to her access group does that mean that viruses etc. will also now have Administrative privileges to jack things up???
