If you cannot trust them, I would suggest you put there computer where you can keep a check on it, and them

If you're using Vista you can set up pretty draconian parental controls. You can determine the hours they use the machine, the programs they can run and the sites they can visit. And you can set it to create a log so that you can see exactly what they've been up to.

I'd suggest at the very least setting up limited accounts for them and installing something like Net Nanny.

thanks for the input,
woodchip, may i just say, its not a question of trusting them, its purely keeping an eye on where they are going and what they are uploading that i would like the ability to check. After all you can't watch there everymove all the time.
