Hi all

I am trying to set up a "previously dead calculator" (celeron 466 with 64mb and an 8 gigHD) of a computer for my partner. She is a key stage 2 teacher with a class of 30 7-8 year old kids and they have destroyed it by deleting anything inside the system folder and anything else that they could remove that was not hidden or protected. The current school IT guy is a teacher with the burden of this issue, and has now broken into very tiny pieces at the thought that all his hours and hard work has gone "in and out" of the recycle bin never to be seen again. So now I get the burden as my wonderfull partner has opened her mouth in festive spirit and said "I know who can fix it" :tazz:.

Out comes the win98se disk. A quick blow and the layer of dust is removed.

All the install and setup has gone fine, updates installed etc... yada yada. Okay..... Now for my question. I have set up two users, Teacher and Class. What I can't seem to find out about is how to set or remove admin rights to either user account. I would also like to dissable the right click on menu items and the desktop within the Class users. I have google searched and read for the past 4 hrs and come up with nothing useful. Are all admin rights set in the registry and how can I set an administrator account up that can edit all accounts?

I realise this is a large topic question so just some helpful links would be great

Thanks in advance

Regards

P.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

This is Win98 right??

If so, there is NO option for Admin or user rights with Win98.. You need either NT4, Win2000 or XP to get that!!

cheers, I didn't realise 98se was that far behind and just assumed it was me missing something. Will 2k run with 64mb?

Yep, but not going to be a speed demon..

Here are the minimum system requirements for running the Windows® 2000 Professional operating system.

Minimum Requirements
Computer/Processor: 133 MHz or higher Pentium-compatible CPU.

Memory: At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM; more memory generally improves responsiveness.

Hard Disk: 2 GB with 650 MB free space.

CPU Support: Windows 2000 Professional supports single and dual CPU systems.

Drive: CD-ROM or DVD drive.

Display: VGA or higher resolution monitor.

Keyboard: Required.
