his own machine.
My son knows more about computers than I do. I am fairly computer literate, but he knows how to write scripts to hack the registry. He does things like tell the computer to shut down at a predetermined time, creates log on loops, and can do all sorts of wierd, bad, cool etc things with the registry. Is there anyway, short of prohibiting him from using the computer that I can prevent him from making changes to the registry. I have tried putting him as a limited user, but then he cannot burn dvd's, install programs, etc. He is an i.t. student at a vocational school and I dont want to totally restrict his access. I just dont want him to be able to change the registry (other than regular stuff like installing programs etc) Thanks for any help.
