    Got PRO a week ago, and am no authority on it - so I wonder if I've done something wrong in settings/oprions, or...?

    Some/all(?) programs have DIRs in "the north forty" and then, those apps can't create path (I think) to said DIR., and therefore I don't get full power of apps I'm using - and missing out some things in SPYBOT S&D, for instance, worry me a bit. So, what am I missing?

    *** Til recently, I used WIN98SE, and the DIR it used for much of what I'm asking about, was C\WIN\APP DATA (I'm fairly certain).

    Will be pleased for your help, even if someone just pasted a link in reply, to site where I could read up on this new (to me) OS - so I can find out what to do or not do.

    AND... after giving up my beloved old ZA 2.6.231 F'wall
    for PRO's f'wall - how far can I trust it?! (Yes, I bought PRO w/SP1 and 2, and have updated the OS almost every night in past week, re just the critical updates).

    Thanks, for your advice, as always

    I'll likely someday lock myself out! We do not use the p'word thing in PRO's bootup sequence; perhaps I should?

    go to start then settings then control panel. look for users..doubleclick to open it from this screen you will be able to see the accounts and most importantly the administrator account. you can edit them or do with them as you will but make sure the administrator account is yours and that you know and don't forget the password. also different from old 98se is the different users are the accounts and are given permissions from the administrator by editing those user accounts and making them either another administrator (not recommended) or limited user (recommended). hope this helps.
