Windows 7: Setting high restrictions for a user account

Setting high restrictions for a user account

Hello all,

I have two accounts on my computer and want to keep one locked down when my kids are on it. Of course I want my Admin account to have full control and my kids account to have very limited functions. I installed somes games for them to play and I don't want them messing around with anything else. This is what I am looking for.

1.) Lock the start menu
2.) Disable right click

Just for the limited account. I don't see there being an easy way to do it.
Does this require changing values in the registry?

Thanks in advance.

I have set up the Parental Controls. I don't see any options about disabling the start menu or right click. Maybe I'm going a little overboard.

Personally, I do not think that you are going overboard. It must present quite a challenge to attempt to bring up children in today's world.

We do have this information which is equally applicable to Seven
Start Menu All Programs List - Enable or Disable - Vista Forums
And this presented by the meerkat
Disable right click

Setting up a user account password?
Good idea or not? Also what if you forgot your pass then how can you get back on your account? Log in through admin account and change pass for your user account? Or what?

Setting up a separate user account
How would I go about setting up a user or guest account so that the person using it can't see or access anything in the admin account? i.e. when that person logs on they would only have access to their own files and not see anything else. thanks
