Blocking programs and website from users

By whoknows

  1. Wondering if anyone knows how to set permissions on a user account so the specific user can only use the programs I want them to use and go to the web sites I allow???
    Also would like to only allow them access to one location on the root not the entire root.

    I have/had the same problem, dont want my 10 year old sister going onto porn sites or using my r rated games hehe... I looking into that kind of software but it is terribly expensive unless it is for a school or university or something. If it is just you and one more person using that computer, you'd be better off buying a cheap system for $300 or so.

    Regards,

    Looks like vista will handle this. Gates should give us a way to do it with XP pro
