Setting New UAC Group RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Forum,

     

    Im sure there is an answer here somewhere, but I have spent several hours and have been unable to find the answer.

     

    I have Windows Vista Ultimate SP2 installed.  It is on a home computer.

    I want to set-up a new user with limited permissions, and no access to several hard disks on the computer.

     

    I went to the advanced user passwords [control userpasswords2] settings, and added a new group "Girlfriend".

    I then added a new user "Sarah", and added her to the group Girlfriend.

     

    I then opened the Security Policy [secpol.msc] and added the "Girlfriend" group to the Local Security policy where there was a "User" group already added.

     

    However, once this is all applied and I go back to the windows log-on screen, the user does not show up to enable logging in to the system.  Can someone please tell me what settings I am missing, or where I should be looking.?

     

    Thanks

    Simon
