I was hoping someone could give me a batch file, or a .reg file that will lock/unlock my homepage at times to keep the kids from changing it.

Also this is off topic, but does anyone have/know any way to disable the ability to lock the desktop background? 2 files like a lock/unlock?

you could give them their own users.
on locking the desktop: if you open the image in ie(sorry) then right click it then click set as desktop item , it will apeer in a window on the desktop, then click the down arrow in the top corner and select cover desktop. that way if they try to change the desktop background in anyway they wont seeit because the item is covering it. (or you could do some sysadmin jiggery pokery, (but i dont know anything about that))

Agreed. I do suggest you getting a new user for your kids as you won't want to have your stuff tempered with by your kids. And they'll have their own virtual room for them to live in, instead of yours. :)

Also, password-protect your user if you're following the above step.

Another option is to get them their own computer to use. Then, they can play their games while you're doing your work, leaving both parties happy.
