    Create a standard account

    Guidelines on how to set-up a non-administrator account to have (or takeover, but shared access is preferred) applications that are user account specific, e.g., Outlook 2010, would be appreciated. My attempts to do this with Outlook resulted in a mess (which was cleaned with a full image restore that had been created for just this eventuality).

    For "takeover", just create a new Administrator account; then demote your current Administrator account to a Standard user, which will retain all your settings and shortcuts.

    I think arranging for shared setup by copying profile settings is much more difficult, and if you only use the Administrator account rarely as recommended then it's unnecessary.
