    Love – Are we talking about a Windows/Mac/Linux Operating System? Once I know what brand/version you are using I can further assist you.



    it has windows xp.

    Picked as best answer

    Ok, should be fairly simple. If you go to Start > Control Panel > Users you should see the user accounts that are created. You can remove the administrative privileges from the user account that you no longer wish to have Admin privileges or you can delete it. Keep in mind that if you delete it you should centralize any data that they have within their profile (Desktop/My Documents). When I say Centralize I mean put it in C:\profileBkup or something along those lines.

    Let me know if you need further assistance.
