Whether you work in an office setting or at home, there are always some files and settings you want to protect from prying eyes or clumsy tinkering. Windows 2000 can help by enabling you to specify each user's access privileges.
Log on to Windows 2000 with an administrator-level account and select Start-Settings Control Panel-Users and Passwords. Select the user name, and click the Properties button. Click the Group Membership tab, and select an appropriate level, such as Restricted users, or, in the Other drop-down list, Guests.
