    Try Start>Settings>Control Panel>Users. It allows you to set the PC up differently for different users.

    Perhaps Mr. Blaze, your knowledge of weapons will help you here. Access Start>Control Panel>User Accounts there you will find these editing choices:
    1. User Accounts
    2. User Account Types
    3. Switching Users
    Switching users has never worked, it only upsets them. Talk the old account into using the new accounts' name. The new account will now take the old account, by name and deed. The old account will perhaps protest - tell me Mr. Blaze, do you have any bullets left? It may come to that!:(
