    Hi

    I have donated a PC running Windows XP to a local Youth Club, because of the large range of youths that will be using it, I need to stop them adding a password to the AnyUser Account. And loading software.

    I have no idea where to start doing this any help would be much appreciated.


    Regards

    That should be a pretty comprehensive solution to solve all known problems.
    Making the account(s) they use Limited Access rather than Computer Administrator might enable them to enhance their hacking skills!

    Hi Joe this is perfrect for what I need, I noted Batchers words this is not to punish them in any way, it's just that some of them have no experience yet and may make inadvertent mistakes,

    I have only restricted regedit, and control panel.
