Anyone know how to prevent access/lock the control panel on Win98?. My kids have learnt you can change wallpaper etc from here, but before they cause me some real problems, I need to keep them out! What peomted this is I notice all the dialogue boxes have 'lost'their text display after some changes to wallpaper and screen saver.
I have downloaded TweakUI and System Mechanic, and certainly both can hide the Control Panel, (and provide some other intersting features), but niether can 'lock' it.
I can also confirm that when the Control Panel is hidden. a right click on the desktop and then Properties takes you straight into the Display Properties box.
The kids would know this, I am sure!!. Anyway, I have managed to respore all the settings now, and gone on a differnet tack to stop them screewing it up. They have told not to touch it again!. They know, and I know, and they know I know they know, Xmas is approaching. Behaviour is allready noticable better, washing up is done without asking, and yesterday my little girl vaccuumed all the house without being asked!!. So, how can we keep Xmas allways four weeka away?
Thnaks for the help.
