MessageThanks for the info and links, Steve and Vic. I just got in from Houston, and headed out the door again in a few. I'll check out the info tonight when I get back home. Mid term exam tonight. Wish me lots and lots and lots of luck. I think I'm gonna need it! Pam Pam, Try this one - www.geocities.com/newsoft02/index.html Or something from this page - www.mnsi.net/~jhlavac/security/encryption.htm Or maybe do a search on the following page - lots and lots of programs here - some are free www1.simtel.net/pub/win95/security/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TTFN - Vic Without getting into a lot of trouble win XP is the only what I know. Windows 98 has nothing to work with he could delete all partitions other than C:\. I seen it happen once. With Win-XP you can then really give rights and take away. The reason I recommended win-xp is because of games. As it is faster and more stable. WIn-2000 is not so user friendly. On the other hand win-xp with SP-1 is just that. Gamers love it. SO you have the security you ask about and the ability to give group policy file sharing and permission and play rad-games. lots of love to all and God bless.

What the world needs now? Pray tomorrow as the ultimatum given to Iraq, is resolved and we don't loss any of our Sons and daughters. Wow, sounds like you had better success than did the rest of our families. Congrats! Does anyone know what type of control or boundaries one can set for users on Win 98? The only thing I really want to be able to do is for when my 10 yr old gets on that box he can't access or save files anywhere but in his own folder. As for prg's on the machine.... nothing there he can't access, and most of them he wouldn't care to. But even then I still only want him to be able to open or save files he makes into the one folder that's his. It's not that he's devious, I feel very comfortable trusting him, but that machine has access to the network and all the files on them, which includes my work machine and client files and I want to avoid an accidental dissaster before it happens. Suggestions anyone? Pam Hey Folks, I only did a search in my name for missing money and could find none. After reading of some of your successes, I searched for "Unclaimed Property" in the name of my decease father-in-law, Erwin Schroeder, and looks like I found $900 in his name. I've asked for a claim form and my wife will submit it to see if it's really her dad. I did a search for my deceased brother Lee Roy Martin and found $300 he had put up for a bond in a Court (I can't figure if he was arrested or was trying to buy a house). I've asked for a claim form for his son. I did a search for my daughter and her x-husband (Rick Benson) and found $.03 the light company owes him. I asked for a claim form so she can get the check for Rick and tell him it's over. Carl :-) ps, Keep searching.
