    Well I think it depends on your PC. You can create as many user accounts as your harddisk space aloows you and you can run as many programs as your well whole PC allows (speed is a factor so is RAM)

    if fast user switching is enabled then i think it will depend on your system's RAM since every profile will be on RAM(unless u log-off)
    if its disabled then it can be anything(or it can be 172 as u think!)

    How come the application is limited to 172??? Why is there that limitation if the computer has the power to run more? Does it mean tht Win XP will not take full advantage of powerful computers???

    Your Answare

    If you Craete a User Account it Occupies 3 MB of Space on your Harddisk so you can create 3 X 1024 X 40 = 122880 Users in Windows Xp Provided you have 43 GB harddisk 43 because 3 GB for windows XP and Some Programs.

    Are you sure each account occupies only 3 MB?

    Where did you get this info?

    Here is Your Answer

    I created a user account with default settings and files and i created user about 20 to 25 times and always it shows 3 MB at default settings and files so 3 MB is tested by me only but it's true you can create a user account and have a look at the space occupied by the user.
