    Default Windows XP Permissions

    I have Win XP Pro in my system. I have a flatmate I don't trust but want to allow him to use my system. How do I set permissions so that he can see my drives but not modify them, and use the programs I set but not install new ones?

    Depends on how much access you want your flatmate to have, 1st, set up an account specially for him, and then assign a user group to it, each group will have different rights ...etc. Try the Help in XP and key in "user rights" they'll explain more about it.

    You can further restrict access to resources by granting a no access to certain resources such as a file or folder or partitions on the flatmate account.
