    Unlinking a PC


    Advice really needed. I own a few PC.s in a couple of offices. I have an employee who is using one of them and will be permanently. The issue is that when she logs on and makes any changes to the desktop, favorites etc, it also makes the changes on my others. I understand that I can create another user account, but when I try to do so, Microsoft Office etc is not there. How can unlink the PC while allowing her to retain all of the software that's on it?
