    Just make sure your av and firewall is active and granny should be alright unless she is a high risk surfer? ;)

    A simple, effective solution would be for you to install Deep Freeze (60 day) demo and uninstall it when the door hits her derrière. If you cant live with that you should have her use Opera browser as it requires fewer security updates than Phoenix.

    If you haven't already done so you might want to post in the firewall forum. Someone may have ideas as to how to prevent Mom from messing up your firewall.

    I'd let her surf in the Sandboxie... Its freeware!
