Re: 2 users on home pc

chicktoeagle,

Log on in the second account and go to Start|Control Panel|User Accounts and establish a new user account with administrative privileges for yourself. In the event you cannot do this, log on as the system administrator and do it in that account.

Logging on as system administrator can be done in Normal Mode in XP Professional. It must be done in Safe Mode in XP Home. At the Welcome screen press Ctrl-Alt-Delete twice, enter Administrator as the user name, leave the password block blank, and click OK.
