I have a Windows XP with two accounts set up Admin and another user. I want to disable some unwated programs on another user start menu. If I sign in as an administrator, I am only accessing my own desktop not the other user account I created and if, I signed in as a second user I won't be able to make any changes beacuse user doesn't have administrative privilages. How can I access both at once or one at a time to make changes to start up programs on user account? can anyone shed some light?

What changes do you want to make? Do you want to change which programs start when the user logs in? Do you want to change what the user sees in the Start Menu Programs, or do you want to prevent the user account from running certain programs? All are different.

I want to change which programs start when the user logs in. Yes, that's what I want to do.

Go into the User's Startup folder and remove whatever entries you don't want there. If the entries are in the All Users Startup, then you'll have to put them into yours if you want the programs to start upon login.

Hopefully, you're not using the default Administrator account for normal computer operation.
