    I have WinXP Pro on my comp and I set up 3 accounts. The non-admin accounts cannot use a screensaver than I installed b/c they don't have access. How can I make it where they have access just for that or where it will prompt for the admin password on their account so that they can do stuff that an admin could, but not be able to without the admin password?

    i have no idea how your system is setup, but i'm going to guess that the screensavers (.scr files?) are located in the c:\windows\system32 directory. right-click on them, select properties, then go to security and give 'Everyone' the read+execute permission. maybe that will work?
