OK, I am very mad.

My sister Dl'ed Blubster from the inet and got me tons of spy/ad-ware. Im using windows XP and forced here to use a guest acount. She sayd the instalation failed and I found a log that sayd it didnt finish, BUT blubster launched at startup the next time and I got tons of Warnings from Zone Alarm of Web Hancer and Web Rebates.

Anyway I want to ask is there anyway to restric acounts from Instaling anything and everything ? I also wanna set Disk Quota but im not sure if I will end up with the same quota on my acount(which is 'OWNER' acount)?

I got rid of the Ad/spy and uninstalled Blubster but I am so frustrated.I wanted to go to bed an hour ago and Im writing messages here.

Sorry for talking so much about myself and not concentrating on the problem itslef, But im so furiouse. :tazz:

Windows acount mannager is preety crapy for such a OS. Anyone know of alterative programs or patches.Or maybe I just need advice on how to increase security.

tnx
