Play games with limited account
I have a little tweak that may help some of you. I set up my boys machine with limited accounts. This keep them from installing and uninstalling anything that may be harmful to the pc. As you know, some games do not run on a limited account. I stumbled across this tweak some time back and would like to share it.

1. create a user account called able2play.
2. make it an administrator acount.
3. create a password. Something like "play" will work.
now you say what keeps them from logging on to this account.
4. run VBS script and enter able2play account as the account you want to hide at the welcome screen.
well what if they go to the traditional logon prompt and logon?
5. install reg patch that auto logs off anyone that logs onto the able2play account.
6. right click on shortcut that you want to play and select run as
7. select able2play and enter password.

this works flawlessly. After you do all the work all the user has to do is item 6 and 7.

If there is a better way please let me know.

I have attached the VBS file and the reg tweak in zip format....
