Well in XP Home there Is Limited and Admin accounts. (Not sure in Pro.) Well I'm looking for something in the middle of the two, so something with less rights than admin but more than Limited.

OK, Well in XP Pro you have these users:

Administrators have complete and unrestricted access to the computer/domain

Backup Operators can override security restrictions for the sole purpose of backing up or restoring files

Guests have the same access as members of the Users group by default, except for the Guest account which is further restricted

Network Configuration Operators: Members in this group can have some administrative privileges to manage configuration of networking features

Power Users possess most administrative powers with some restrictions. Thus, Power Users can run legacy applications in addition to certified applications

Remote Desktop Users Members in this group are granted the right to logon remotely

Replicator Supports file replication in a domain

Users: Users are prevented from making accidental or intentional system-wide changes. Thus, Users can run certified applications, but not most legacy applications

Debugger users can debug processes on this machine, both locally and remotely

Help Services Group: Group for the Help and Support Center

I dont post ********......


German computer magazine C'T claims that by changing only 2 bytes from the file setupreg.hiv in Windows's XP Home kit, users can get access to certain functions only avalaible in Windows XP Professional, such as Remote Desktop, User management and enhanced security features. C'T writes in its latest print issue (in German only) that you need to copy the root directory and the i386 directory of the WindowsXP CD to your harddisk, extract the Bootsector of your WindowsXP CD and change only 2 bytes in i386\Setupreg.hiv by using Regedit. In fact all you have to do is edit the binary key "default" and change "01" to "00" and "02" to "00" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Homekey\ControlSet001\Services\ setupdd, C'T claims. There is one big drawback, though. Users won't be able to install Service Pack 2."
