Windows 7: Security on home PC against minors

W7 Professional x64

Forgive my broken link:

Safe Families We-Blocker Parental Control - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET

Follow Bill's advise, as well. That will pretty much fool proof the computer.

Just thought I would come back and update everyone on what I did.
I installed Win7Pro but found Group policy editing a bit difficult.

I installed Windows Steadystate and locked out features for my sibling's account such as Noa ccess to cmd, control panel, etc.

Then, I installed Symantec Parental Family control ( FREE ) and chose categories to block. Voila! all done.

If you find that you are still in need of additional blocking have a look at OpenDNS
OpenDNS - Parental Controls: Block Adult Internet sites at Home It's free and rather easy to set up.
