How do I stop my son downloading

  onthedrink 10:13 12 Nov 2008

I have 2 PC's networked using a BT router the kids use one computer with seperate sign on's on Windows XP and I have my own. Is there any way I can stop one of them downloading loads of ...rubbish on the family PC which is sluggish. I also recently couldnt log on to the internet due to Issues on the family PC as it said the family PC probably had a 'Blaster' virus
in fact if I could really lock down the PC for access to very limited stuff that would be great

Try Googling for Parental Control software. There are many programs out there that claim to be able to do just what you want. I can't recommend any particular one as I do not have children that age to worry about, but I can understand your concerns. Spend some time reading reviews of them to see what other people, in the same situation as yourself, use.
