Angry my kids are fiddlers
i have two teenage kids that love fiddle with there computer eg. open control panel / folder options/ veiw/ show hidden files and folders then go and delete the ntldr system file for some reason, then they blame each other "it wasnt me"

i was wondring if there is a program that will add restriction to there accounts eg.
no control pannel
no c:/ "system drive"
no my network places or no changing network connection
no changing there start menu

so its kind of like a internet cafe I understand that to make changes you have to use regedit
but i dont want to break it ether

so if you know any great apps that will give a GUI makin it easier, savin me alot of hair^

ps DNT delete the ntldr system file untill you say: GOODBYE

Speaking of internet cafes, MS has a free program called Steady State. Basically it locks down everything and nothing is saved. That also means no favorites bookmarks or my documents. So everytime you boot up the computer is in pristine condition .

Create limited accounts for them(for yourself as well). Then change admin account password and keep it secret.

I think you need to get legal operating systems before requesting assistance here. We don't help with illegally obtained software.
