Windows 7: Am I safe from my "click every link" 13 year old?

Am I safe from my "click every link" 13 year old?

I am building a network where my son and I will be getting our internet from the same switch. He clicks every link known to man and I wipe his computer every 3-6 months to get rid of all the crap he accumulates. If I just don't allow him on the homegroup, will my computer and my NAS be safe from everything he brings into the house?

My level of expertise is competent home user, networking isn't my business or hobby. I do just enough of it to get the job done then forget everything I've learned 6 beers later .

Thanks!

Yes, keep him out of NAS and your own PC. Make sure he doesn't know the access passwords to them. Then he can do no harm.
