Securing a Computer

User Groups

For a shared or workgroup computer, there are two main types of user accounts: computer administrator and limited. For a domain network computer, different account types (administrator, standard user, restricted user) provide similar permissions as the ones on a shared or workgroup computer.

The computer administrator account is for the person who needs to make changes to anything on the computer as well as manage user accounts. A computer administrator account can install programs and hardware, make system-wide changes, access and read all non private files, create and delete user accounts, change other people's accounts, change your own account name and type, change your own picture, and create, change, or remove your own password.
