    what operating system, what brand of machine? If xp, simply assign a passworded user account and make it the default account.

    telling you, you better find a pocket on that fur coat, because you are about a hound's breath away from getting a pocket protector. First firefox, now this?

    I seem to recall when you were just a furball quietly lurking in the corner, looking for the 'any' key to press. :)
