    Running XP... I'm interested in setting up the guest account w/ limited access. - Only letting whoever signs on w/ the guest account access to certain programs, etc. Is this possible?

    Well your link puts me a little bit closer to what I'm trying to do. I mainly want to hide all files and only allow the guest account access to the internet and maybe a couple of other applications. Looks like I'm going to have to play w/ it a little bit. Any other ideas are appreciated!

    Judging by his user name, he wants to share his computer with some frat bros. That, and he doesn't want his girlfriend to see his porn.

    if you mean the default guest account, i would not use that. disable it, and create another account for this purpose.

    with ntfs permissions you can keep this user from seeing 'your' files.
