I would like to stop my son from loading programs on my computer. I don't want to stop him from doing anything else though.
Using win98se.

Thanks in advance

Win98 wasn't build with the idea to provide a reasonable level of Security, I would recommend you to upgrade to a OS that has built-in Security measures.

Thanks recap but was thinking more on other software, hopefully freeware.

What about partitioning the HDD?

One section for you and another for him - that way he can install to his hearts content while you can rest in peace.

Only needs him to reboot and choose his partition.

Just a thought.

Good luck

NetNanny should do it, don't know of any free ones, I'm afraid. ( Not of the dark )
