I want to set up a user account for my granddaughter with limited computer access.

She has a program called A+. It is a program for school work.

I have the program installed on my computer, but I want to set it up so that when she signs into her new user account she is limit to that one program ONLY. It does connect to the internet, but I do not want her to be able to do anything else on the internet. Currently I have to continually monitor her use, to be sure she isn't going where she should not be.

Thanks

probably the best solution for you is to use OpenDNS...

OpenDNS gives you more than 50 filtering categories to choose from. Simply check the boxes of the categories you want to block and watch your filtering take effect within minutes....you can read more about it here....

You may also look at Windows Steady State, it is free from Microsoft and should do what you need it to do.

When you click ctrl+alt+del does anything come up?
