Hello, Now that we have a faster PC, the kids want the Sims reinstalling (not V2) so I have gone out & got another original 1st Sim because the only one we had was a bad copy, so now it's all legit.
We also have Unleashed, Hot Date, On Holiday, Superstar, Making Magic & living it up expansion packs, all legit originals.
The PC (well capable of it) is using XP Pro & different user accounts/desktops.
The kids do not have admin rights.
Ergo, it will not run unless admin rights are assigned.
I see from what little I can find online, that I can either setup an admin account or that they right click & chooses run as.
Either way, they get to know the admin account password.
This I do not like, I'm happy enough to let them have access to an admin account if I could totally lock it sop that it only plays certain games & does not give access to anything else or to be able to right click & run as admin if I could get it to save the password.
Or for them to have the admin account password if I could remove just the admin account from the login screen.
(ps - I have made a "games" account with admin privileges for all this).
Has anyone any suggestions please?
I really, really do not, never now how trust my daughter & youngest lad with admin rights, neither do I want them able to browse & find my porn
ps, have tried registering with the EA forums, but have not got my auth email yet, taking ages.
