I have recently switched to Sky broadband, however, my son cannot access the internet from his "user account" in XP unless I am also logged on, as he cannot connect to the internet. With my old ISP, he just clicked on the desktop icon and connected, but with Sky, there is no icon - I have even tried running the installation CD on his user account, to no avail. I contacted Sky, who said it is an issue with my computer, not their broadband. Is this correct? How is my son supposed to access the internet if I am not there, which is often. I don't want to give him my password as that will give him access to my own user account. Does anyone know what I have to do to enable him to connect to the net via his own user account? Thnak you

Don't use Sky but, can't you give him access by giving him guest rights as you would do with a normal ISP?
does your son have a "guest" account or a"limited" account my guess is he has the former as a guest account can not initiate an internet connection on its own
if this is the case go to user accounts in control panel and set up a "limited" account for him - you can then set up "permissions" for him
