    Hi, this might be a long shot, but I share my computer with my teenage kids. They constantly muck around with the computers settings, download a heap of garbage and generally I have to reformat every couple of weeks.

    Is there any way I can let them use the computer for net surfing, but lock them out from downloading, or changing settings etc. ??
