I believe you would have to use the group policy editor and edit the abilities for the group you want and place your family members accts in it

There are certain programs available which specialise in this.
One which springs to mind is Winshield but I don't know if they've released a WinXP compatible version yet.
Winshield can disable absolutely everything. From hiding desktop items, to disabling My Computer, Run, Help, Control Panel and even entire drives (useful for disabling something like a floppy/cd).

More Info on Winshield: http://www.win2000mag.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=5405

Hope this helps,
Patrick

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
