Our daughter and her friends also use our computer. It's in the family room. They download and install games, im programs and other programs. How can we stop these things from being downloaded/installed?

"our computer"? So does she have one of her own? If so, why is she using yours?

There are numerous programs out there in the internet that can do such. As well you can set up to block a site in which all of the software is being downloaded.

I've have seen Net Nanny recommended many times. I have no personal experience with it though.

I searched on google becuase i thikn i saw some registry keys for something like this before, and well basicaly, what operating system is this? XP Pro? Home, Vista?

Second, make another acount and make it a limited acount this will help because it blocks certain elements from being changed, ill look into finding out how to stop the downloading part, but first tell me what operating system you have, also if it is possible make your daughter a limted acount and password protect yours.
