First.......I found this site by looking for a way to remove MSN Messenger/net. Passport. Got the answer...Thank YOU!:) :D :eek: :cool:

Next, I am trying to get rid of all of the msn game zone files. They do not show up on my add/remove programs...grrr.:mad:

AND....With Windows XP, how do I prevent one of the users from using ANY online software?:confused:
Thanks!

Howdy,

For Messenger go to Control Panel>>Add/Remove Programs>>on the left-hand side you will see
Add/Remove Windows Components click on that
Go down the list until you see Windows Messenger
Uncheck the Box and then click next and follow the prompts

Simplest way to avoid casual unwanted use is to password protect your logon. Do not enable any auto-logon. When you leave your computer hit the windows key + the 'L' key to lock your system. You can also setup other users to have limited privileges. Password protecting your administrator account is key.

Thanks GripS! I must say....I feel like a kid in a candy store....I just tried it, and that was cool! :cool: ....not to mention it saves me time!:D

Any ideas about how to block online use for other users...how to remove browsers from specific user desktops..but not all? :confused: I am the admin, and my husband has a limited - so he does not mess anything up - and then there is the log-on for the children. I would rather them (just the children) not even have the possibility of getting online...that way there is no friction..or danger. BUT, I home-school, and the children need the computer to do their reports...practice typing....educational software.....learn programs....watch the cd's from the math teacher.......that kind of thing. But, because I need to get things done around the house, it is not possible for me to monitor them the whole time.:(

Thanks Everyone!

You can make group account and then make all the children members of that group account.
