Windows 7: Can I have some advice?

Can I have some advice?

Hello guys,

I'm hoping to teach Mum how to use my PC in the near future and she will only be using it for typing etc and maybe the internet. Also she only use it sometimes.

My question is:

Shall I create a Limited User Account for her or turn on the Guest Account?

Hi,

A couple of suggestions:

1. Create a user account for her (limited if you like) as you already identified
2. After you have done 1. above (and before she logs on!) create an image of your system, so if she does break it, you can recover in a matter of a few tens of minutes.

Imaging with free Macrium
