    For a Vista CPU bought new for home use with no need for ownerships and
    permissions and rights, what step or set of steps within Vista constitute the
    simplest but also most comprehensive method of assigning all possible
    ownerships, permissions, and rights to that one user? It puzzles me that
    Microsoft does not include a Wizard for this. Why should the home user be
    expected to struggle with a setup designed for fairly large organizations, a
    setup which is no doubt easy to use for the professional IT folks? I have
    Vista Home Premium.

    I feel your pain.

    How many users - just you?

    Are you an Internet veteran who hasn't a history of getting your
    computer infected with all sorts of virus and malware problems?

    Do you have decent anti-virus software installed? If it's Norton,
    it's only "trial" ware and will require you to pay something for it
    soon. Best to uninstall it NOW and get a free one.

  3. Your question is unclear. What exactly do you seek that is not provided
    when a new user is created?
