Preloaded Software

Hi, I've just got a A61e (XP PRO) and it has some preloaded software like Picasa, MSN etc.
However after creating the initial admin account, I then created 2 other limited user accounts.
These limited accounts cannot access these programs, are there any tricks for making them visible / accessible?
Many thanks for your help

Re: Preloaded Software

Your issue may be related to an issue I have just spent the morning solving.

Try this:

Go to: C:\documents and settings\<username> 

right click on the Username folder and choose properties, then choose Security Tab and give the user full access to the folder and all subfolders.

If you want tighter security you can do it per application folder in the "application data" but the above way should solve it for all applications.
