As far as I understand it, a generic ID is simply a user ID that is created and configured for a specific USE rather than for a specific USER. Creating a generic ID in Windows would be just like creating any other user ID.  However, the tricky part would be defining the function of that ID and then creating rules, security settings, etc., to limit its use to that purpose. An example would be creating a user ID to be used to log on only to one computer and everyone who logs on to that computer uses that logon. What exactly are you trying to accomplish with a generic ID?
