Can someone please help me? I have set up a computer for my family to use, but I don't want them messing w/ the anti virus on the windows xp home system. I've tried allowing and restricting some permissions, but now the anti virus will not work on their machine. Can someone please tell me what or where I can go to get the definitions/meanings of the permissions in the advanced mode of windows xp home edition? I want to be able to enable the anti virus at the same time of preventing them from tampering w/ it.

Thanks in advance!

Give other family members a limited account, is the easiest thing to do. Playing with the permissions is potentially asking for trouble.
