some body said that we don't have to install a game or software more than once. If you notice that its not on other accounts, go into your account and under: c:\Documents and Settings\(your account name)\Start Menu\Programs Look for the program that you want all users to have and move it to: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs Then the program will be in all accounts. but its not working unless i give the users administrative rights which i dont want to give. please help me........I want to install softare which should be usable by all the users on the system....

While installing any software, there is no option to choose to enable all users to use that software. Normally when you install a software, Windows lets all users to users. Although you see in other user account, in thier Start Menu that not all the softwares are appearing but the users can acess those softwares from either the path that you have mentioned in your post or from folder "shared documents" (if the program was moved there).

I am not fully understanding you problem but what i expect I am tolding you. You can set all programs for all users. for this you have to go individual user accounnts. then select indiviual program mes for it. If still problem exit then you should again stall progarammes or softwares for it.
