I am the main PC user, with my grandson using it to play internet games etc., is there any advantage or disadvantage to changing from 'Administrator' to 'User'.? P.

Yes... You are the admin account, and you can create a limited account for your grandson.

Go to: Control Panel / User accounts, and follow the prompts.

You can set the access you feel is appropriate for your grandson, and choose a password.

make sure you have the admin account password protected or your grandson will be able to change the pc & could wipe the lot or delete things you need
