You can create/change the user account type to Administrator, via Control Panel User accounts.

>> tempory internet/content.ie5/
These folders will be present in each user profile.

>>"no access" flag.
Which files/folders? You may need to take ownership of those files.

Ramesh,
How do I set up the "user" account to have the same rights as the
administrator. I've tried to do that and have not succeeded. For instance
the administrator can look at the tempory internet/content.ie5/numered
folders, while the user cannot. I want the user to be able to look at the
same files as the administrator. There are a lot of files that the user gets
a "no access" flag.
any thoughts?
Thanks,
Bob

And that a default user account [other than the built-in Administrator]
would be present.

Totally agree to your point, Gordon. But the OP might be referring to his
account [admin equivalent] as they say "I am the only one who uses my
computor". But, I can see your point here.

it is NOT good practice to use the built-in Administrator
log in for every day use. This is your ONLY way of
accessing your machine if your user log-in goes belly up
short of a repair install. Create a user account, give it
admin rights and THEN do what Ramesh advised. I am
surprised that Ramesh, being MVP did not mention this.
