If the accounts didn't have such limits?
The ASP.NET user is because you have the .NET framework installed. If you don't need it, uninstall it.
I have fairly recently upgraded to WinXP Pro. I am logged on as the system administrator. Three other family members have limited user accounts.
Things work fine for me but a lot of programs don?t work properly on the other accounts. This includes Windows Picture and Fax Viewer, which I assume is WinXP program. I have read the article at http://users.westelcom.com/rogers/xpsware.htm and the linked Knowledge Base articles 307091 & 308418.
I have copied shortcuts from Desktop & the Programs folder to All Users but this has not really worked. In fact it made things worse on my account as it seemed to double install some start up programs. I have now restored back.
While in the limited accounts, I cannot install or re-install programs, as this is prevented by the account settings.
I have read the guidelines to ?run with different credentials?, but can?t follow that through as I haven?t set a password on my administrative account (nor do I really want to).
There is nothing on my administrative account that needs to keep secret and all I want is for everyone to have full access to the system programs. I didn?t think XP was supposed to be this difficult. I am frankly confused by what to do.
I?ve looked at the article ?HOW TO: Set, View??Folder Permissions? but don?t really know if that will achieve what I want.
One other thing. I don?t know if it is connected, or not. In User Accounts there is an account entitled ?ASP.NET Machine A?., Limited Account, Password Protected? I don?t know what this account is. It does not display on the Welcome Screen. A friend set up the OS install for me, so I don?t know if this comes with the install, or not.
This is causing real difficulty at present. Is anyone able to assist please ? With thanks.
