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

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
