    I build the odd pc for family and friends, however I have built one recently and the guy is forever going into the bios and the registry and playing about, causing the pc to malfunction and moire has to fix it.
    I have passworded the bios so he cant get in but is there anyway of disabling a means of getting into the registry?? It's getting to be a pain in the butt. :confused:

    Cheers

    "Thats it, muck it up one more time and you fix it your self."

    next time you have to fix it set it up so you have the administrator rights and take his away. this way he can not mess it up anymore....
