Hello, all! I have a couple of general questions:

1 - On each PC i my house, I have an admin account (password protected) and a restricted account (no PW). My wife and son use the family accounts (restricted). I map a drive while in admin mode, and when I switch back to the family accout that drive (nor the printer I setup) can be found.
What am I doing wrong?

2 - Also, I have Cybersitter on all the PC's. on one a disable it as admin, on another it will not disable (I use msconfig and un check whil in admin mode) even tried deactivating it, but when I reboot, it loads (in admin mode).
How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance

1 - I think I figured a work around; change the restricted to unrestricted, make the changes (map the drives, add shared printer) then change it back again to restricted.....seems like a long work around, any other ideas?

Hmmm....answering my own question; I need to have the restricted account named the same name on both (or more) pc's. I setup a share using and admin account, and on that PC there is a restricted account named 'family'. On the laptop that is trying to access that shared, the restricted account is named 'Tim'. No go.
I must make all my admin accounts the same name (well, not really) and all the restricted accounts the same name.
