We had the internet installed on one user (we have 3 admin accounts and one limited) but the internet only works on the one it's installed on. When we try and install it on another user it ruins it for all of them!

We basically want to log in to our own user account and use the net/play games on the same user instead of everyone logging into one specific user

I hope that makes sense!

How do you connect to the internet? Are these machines networked? How so (wired/wireless)?

If you want to share the internet connection with all the computers, then they need to be networked. You need to buy either a wired or wireless router.

What exactly do you mean with:
"We had the internet installed on one user"
What did you install?

If it's an application, try reinstalling using an admin account and set the ALLUSERS property to 2

MsiExec.exe /I project.msi ALLUSERS=2
or
Setup.exe /V"ALLUSERS=2"

sth like this...

Okies, lemme explain it a bit better:

Me - Admin
Sister - Admin
Mum - Admin
Brother - Limited

We installed the software/drivers for Tiscali broadband on my sister's account, but can't access the internet on mine, my brothers or my mums user account. I tried installing the software/drivers on mine to get it working on there too but it wouldnt' let me install it on mine and ballsed it up on my sisters account too.

If it's an application, try reinstalling using an admin account and set the ALLUSERS property to 2

MsiExec.exe /I project.msi ALLUSERS=2
or
Setup.exe /V"ALLUSERS=2"


I hate to sound dumb but I really don't know what you mean here! Even looking at the article that wannabe1 posted earlier went straight over my head!
