Windows 7: User Permissions Standard user

User Permissions Standard user

Hey,

I just wanted to know whether its possible for a standard user to be abe to install programs/apps on their account. Basically im the admin and have a password on my account. I want to create another user for everyone to use and allow them to install programs, however i dont want them to be able to access my files or folders through the C:/Users section, is this possible to do?

I know you can stop them seeing your files and folders if they have a standard account,but they cant install anything.

Please let me know, thanks

Yes, you can make them private.

You can even make your files invisible (hide them)

Guest does not count. Make another account the way you plan. Then check the tutorial.
Guest is not standard. There are guest accounts, Adm accounts and standard accounts.

Sorry if i sound confusing, i made the account guestuser, i know you have a default guest account. But ive made a standard account the normal way and have named it GuestUser.

For step 6 can i enter the objectname as GuestUser? and then it should allow me to set permissions for that user?
