Make sure your Administrator account is password protected and create a new user account for your daughter.

If you don't want to create a new account, the following registry tweak to prevent downloads in Internet Explorer, might be of some help:

Click on Start > Run > and type regedit.

Navigate to the following registry keys:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\3

Check the following DWORD Value: (make sure it's set to "3")

Value Name: 1803
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = downloads enabled, 3 = downloads disabled)


However, this won't do any good if she's using Firefox to download. Setting a user account might be your best bet.
