First some background info. I have a box with XP Pro on
it. I have set up 5 power user accounts plus myself as
the administrator.

1. How do I enable the power users to install software
that will change entries in the registry (eg MSN
Messenger)? I assume I use a group policy but I'm not
sure how I implement it.

2. When the users install a program (eg a computer game)
the program will install a shortcut on the desktop. How
do I get the shortcut to appear on just the desktop of
the user who wants the program rather than all the users'

Thanks in advance for your help.
