This kid, the son of a friend, has used my mother's computer twice now. Both times, he installed AIM and went to websites that set all sorts or spyware and cookies. Is there a way in winXP to keep him from downloading stuff? Some password protect or something? I'm using 98lite, and try to stay as far from XP as I can, so I'm not familiar with that OS. GATOR got on there somehow. GATOR!!!! How can he be so silly? Anyway, I want to stop him. I'm going to have a word with him too, but just in case he's the non-compliant type, I'd like to cover myself so I can stop uninstalling things.
