Understanding User Accounts:

A user is someone who uses a computer. A user account defines, what a user can do using Windows XP
In Windows XP, there are three types of user accounts.

Administrator account:
 The administrator can do everything with the computer and can do anything he or she desires, essentially giving them control over the entire computer, including other accounts. The administrator account can never be disabled or deleted.

Standard account:
 Users with standard accounts can install programs and hardware, change pictures and related personal data, and create, change, or remove his or her password.

Guest account:
 The guest account doesn't require a password, can't add or remove programs from the computer, and is disabled by default. This account type is great for children or students.

To easily manage user accounts, click the User Accounts icon in the Control Panel.

The User Accounts window presents you with an easy-to-use interface.
