I have just installed XP professional on my new Gateway 7510GX. I have been using XP home on my desktop for about 4 years now. I have a couple of questions:

1)Where do I access "Administrative Tools"...i don't find it in Control Panel?

2)How do I assign/limit user accounts to drive partitions or folders that I specify? I don't want all accounts to have access to the same programs for security reasons. Is there a way to do that?

Thanks for the help.
