Re: password(s) question
Sounds like you need to set up a separate account for this person that
is set to 'Deny log on locally', and then change the password for your
main account. That will allow them to access files over the network,
but not log on. To set the Deny log on locally flag, Start -
secpol.msc - Local Policy - User Rights Assignment - Deny log on
locally - Add User or Group
No matter where you go, there you are!
