to use the internet? I've read posts from people who changed their account from Administrator to limited and couldn't access their data. So be very careful about making changes. And as always, have everything saved or a recent backup before proceeding.
I just bought a new PC and am using multiple user accounts for the first time. During the setup process, I was prompted to set up accounts, and I set up one in my name, and another in my wife's name.
When I go into "Computer Management", the following accounts are listed:
1. Administrator (says member of "Administrators")
2. My Account (says member of "Administrators")
3. My Wife's Account (says member of "Administrators")
4. Guest (says "disabled" and member of "Guests")
Someone told me I should change my account and my wife's account from Administrator-type accounts to Power User-type accounts, becuase it is dangerous to surf the Net when logged in as an administrator. Is this true?
Also, when I reboot my computer, I am presented with only two choices: my account and my wife's account. The Administrator account is not shown. If I wanted to log in as the Administrator, how would I do that?
