Editing user rights

Discussion in 'Windows XP Security' started by Rodolfo Barbosa, Dec 30, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    I have on my computer 3 acounts. The bild-in Administrator, my account and
    my fionce's account. I would like to give her the right to burn CDs,
    access/format/install memory stick devices, install activeX controls and run
    any software installed on the machine. Otherwise, I wanna block her access to
    install and uninstall softwares.

    I've tryed GPEdit but every change that I've made affected all computer's
    users, including the bild-in Administrator account. Is there any way to edit
    only a specific user or group rights?

    Thanks.

    Why not simply make your fiance's account a Limited User account?

    Because an Limiter User Account, do not allow her to use memory stick
    devices and install new hardwares on PC.
