    I have Windows XP Professional in two of my employees PCs

    Recently, I have observed they have started adding new software carelessly to the PC and are delaying work on the other hand

    I would like to put an end to this menace

    Can you please tell me how to:

    1. Restrict software from being installed on the PCs

    2. Restrict the websites that they log on to

    3. Get a log of activities they have been doing daily

    Maybe this is harsh however, I have to keep some control over them as all my accounts are managed on the PCs

    Please help me

    Thanks in advance

    Some antivirus have "parental controls" on them, and that might be the best way to take control of misuse...

    Create a limited account (not administrative account) for your employees. After logging as limited user, they have insufficient privileges to install new software. Using parental control you can control exactly what website they can and can't visit, also you can set a logon hours limit for that account.
