When you move a file it will keep the permissions it had. When you copy a
file it will then inherit permissions from the folder it is copied to. You
still can change permissions on it to grant your wife access. For programs
that will not run for some users check the permissions on the folder for the
application to make sure that the other users have at least
read/list/execute permissions. Unfortueanly some programs will not run
unless the user is a local administrator or power user or has the same
permissions to the application as the power users group. The link below will
describe how to check and change NTFS permissions in XP and note the
procedure is different depending on if you are using XP Home or XP
