Do you want to let this person use your computer? A better solution might be to set up a password so she can't use it at all!

Hi,

"System Policy Editor" which is part of Windows O/S should do what you wish.

If you are using 2000, NT or XP then you can use Administrator & User passwords, to restrict what can and cannot be accessed.

You could also consider a parental control program such as Cybersitter. This will restrict access to numerous types of web site and can have anything you wish added as a restricted site. This works very well in preventing our daughter getting to all sorts of chat rooms, instant messaging etc.

Personally I'd go with a BIOS power on password.
