Why should I use different user accounts for my computer?

This discussion has a more recent version.

We recommend that you set up a separate Windows user account for each family member. When each computer user has their own Windows user account, you can set different permissions for each. Then you can, for example, limit when and how many hours your kids can browse the internet. You can also limit the content and web sites that they can access.

Only someone with administrative access rights is allowed to change the product settings for the various Windows user accounts. For example, parents can have administrative access rights, and children can have normal access rights for their Windows user accounts.
