    Hello everyone and may God bless!
    I'm volunteering and my church school and have noticed that their pc's (running XP Pro) in their lab are reallly messed up. Along with cleaning the pc's up I've installed AV protection and a clean-up program and DKLite.
    The problem I'm having is that the kids are able to download stuff off the net. How can I disallow that in their profiles from my admin. profile?
    Your help is greatly appreciated! I mean reeeeeally!!

    Yeah, but how do I keep them from changing the settings? And installing stuff from cd? I remember that I had some restrictions at work other than downloading. There were things that wouldn't allow me to change settings also. It was part of the OS not the browser.
    Can ya help me with that?
    Thanks for the reply Fab!
