Could you type up instructions for the other users and allow them to make their own changes. This could help them to see the value of keeping their user profile up to date as you are doing.
I keep hearing that having an Administrator XP account is like "being a god", you can do anything you want, you have full control over the computer. Well I have an Administrator account and the other users have password protected regular accounts, and one other person has an Admin acct. I don't want to snoop, it's nothing like that (I already can get into every document on the computer, as can they, none of us protect folders or documents), but I want to reset Security settings in IE and found that doing them on my screen does not apply to all users. I have to reset them separately from each user's screen. And, I cannot, because I cannot get into all the other user's IE settings.
I am not a "god" as Administrator - all I can do is download programs and I guess that's it! Probably they can download programs too! I really need to change the security. The other users don't even live here all the time, do I really need each person to sit down and open their screen for me to work on? That will take forever!
I don't want the other users to share their passwords with me - they have had the same passwords for a long time, and I don't want them to have to change them because they shared them with me. Why can't I get into their IE programs to make a serious security change?
