A problem with ICQ.

I am running 2 accouts on Windows XP. One is an administrative accout the other being a limited account. I made the limited account an administrative account so he will be able to install the newest ICQ and be able to use it (thought it would register the .dlls in his database). Then I changed that account back to limited and everytime he runs icq he gets an error message saying: "You do not have administrative privlages so icq may not function correctly, for more information contact your system administrator" Well the application doest even start up, and I don't know a way to get it to work without making his account an admin account.

He is using the newest FULL version of ICQ, any opinions/comments on how to get it working will be very appreciated!

Thanks!

Hi sorry, took so long.

For information on each group and what they can do read here> http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_groups.htm

For step by step instructions on createing users and changing group membership read here> https://iats.missouri.edu/iats/servlet/knowledgebase/article/30783

In a nut shell, right click my computer scroll to manage. Expand Local Users and groups, Click on users in the left pane, then double click the user you wish to modify in the right pane.  This will open that users properties, select the "Member Of" Tab Then click add. Locate and dbl click the "power users" group. It should now appear in the bottom box. Click ok, then click apply, then click ok. Close the MMC  your done. Log in and test.  If you have any troubles let me know.

Yes you must have admin rights or be given rights to administer accounts by an admin in order to make these changes.
