How to stop my crazy family from downloading destructive software?
August 26, 2005 9:45 PM Subscribe
My computer illiterate family has an HP box running Windows XP Home SP 2.
They are constantly installing random programs from suspicious websites and allowing nefarious Active X controls to run – often leaving a trail of destruction for me to deal with.
Is there an easy way to restrict their ability to install software?
(Also - was I dreaming or did Microsoft just release some kind of policy editing tool that deals with this kind of problem?)
