This is my first post on the forums but I have been following the forums for a long while. The Vista Movie maker and Vista Media player workarounds on Windows 7 are my personal favourites.
I am currently trying to secure my PC so that my siblings ( who are minors ) cannot view adult sites. I am the only Administrator and the rest of them are Standard account holders.
A mate recommended K9
to me and it's pretty good - you can set what categories of websites to block, what keywords to block and when something is blocked, a popup appears with the option to override it using an admin pswd. You can also monitor Internet activity. If you try to change the pswd using Forgot ur pswd
trick, a temporary pswd is sent to a pre-specified email address. If you try to uninstall , you are again prompted for the pswd. Now, I have created a different email for this purpose and the password is secure as well.
-The problem is there are patches available to override or temporarily disable K9 and these are being used by my siblings. How can I prevent this ? -They have also recently watched videos on youtube on how to use the hidden Admin account in Windows 7 and have used that to get my Admin account pswd!!! So, I also need to disable access to cmd and regedit. Again, how do I do this? All help would greatly be appreciated. Btw, I am using Windows 7 Home Premium and am fairly geeky.
