    Wouldn't locking things down under an LUA do it?

    My son is only able to do anything meaningful via the opera icon on his desktop.

    TM can be disabled thus or you could try the s/w discussed here.

    Just interested...

    Absolutely... :)

    Assuming the OP doesn't want the rollback feature offered by Returnil, wouldn't another option be to set up the LUA with SRP, even if you don't have gpedit.msc (ie if you're running XP or Vista Home)?

    E.G. To disable Control Panel for the LUA:
    Go to SRP via Local Security Policy in Administrative Tools.
    Disallow the path C:\windows\system32\control.exe and set this to all users except local adminstrators

    Just thinking aloud...

    Edit: OK, that was too loud - there's no Local Security Policy on either XP or Vista Home - seems SRP cannot be done on Home versions without hyper-difficult reg-tweaking :(

    Depending on your OS, the Group Policy Editor works well.
