We bought our son a new compaq laptop with windows vista in March.
His free subscription to Norton ended and he got the Personal Antivirus Virus. I got rid of that for him and put Avast on. But before I give him the laptop back, I would like to make it so that he cannot download and install any programs or toolbars. I'd also like to restrict him from viewing objectionable content. Should I make myself the administrator and have him login as a user with restricted access, or? If so, what's the best way to do that? I don't want to completely ruin his surfing experience, just want to take the 'bad' stuff not suitable for kids out. And I want to make it more difficult for him to 'gunk things up' or slow the computer down due to him not reading and ignoring checked boxes before hitting the 'ok' button etc.
Thanks in advance!
