OK - understand that - but if a new limited user can see all existing
programs then how can their account be modified to ensure only minimal
services etc are launched? Are there further tweaks needed to give FS2004
all the space it needs and kill unwanted applications from running i.e. Av
software?

A new limited user should see all existing installed programs and be
able to run them (there may be some housekeeping progs that cannot be
run).  However such a user will NOT be able to install anything -
although for some installation routines it is possible to use the "Run
As" function and Run As Administrator.
