    Hi!
    I under how I block the explorer(file manager or what I should call it, I mean just the "my computer" window not the whole explorer.exe) , on a account? And make it "blocked" every time I start the computer on that account. The reason is that I don't want to let the people on that account do anything else than play games so actually I want a program or anything that I can start on that account which blocks all the "my computer" and administrative stuff and only let the people on that account play games. Although I do want a administrator account also but with password.

    So my question is ether a program which can block all stuff besides the games or to find a way to block the "my computer" explorer.

    Thanks in advance!!;)

    To be honest its gunna be best if you post this type of question in the networking section as its a network issue. Their are 3rd party software which will allow you to delegate controll over programs such as parental software. But if your looking for proffessional software to control what people can and cannot do within their user account its most likely going to cost you an arm and a toe. :D

    I'm not looking for something in a network. It's just on one computer..
