I set up a limited user account (Windows XP SP2).  I also used Access Manager to add some security measures.  I thought I had unchecked everything to disallow display properties access but it still wont give access to it through the limited account.  I got upset so I uninstalled Access Manager altogether and still not letting the limited user access to dp.  I want to give them access to it so they can change background and screensaver.  I am thinking it left behind something because I know limited users should be able to get into the dp.  What shall I do??? Thank you.

Group Policy settings are not something to just jump into, but I would recomend googling Group Policy for Beginners

I appreciate your help but do you have a more definitive answer (e.g. go here, do this, click that). Thank you.

It was just a setting in Access Manager.   I reinstalled it and removed the Disable Control Panel which also disables the DP...go figure. Thank you.
