Childproofing my computer

I want to secure my computer so my children (ages 11 to 16) who are home for the summer, won't be able to access unsafe and/or innappropriate websites. And also so they won't download things that are spyware or other unsafe things.

How do you start work under age with Coles


Not a computer question

My spouse has been using his smart phone to sync with all my accounts, change passwords, create extra accounts and make actual changes to my pc with things that I have been restricted from, and just c


Oh--this must be the problem. Since this is your computer and you wish to have exclusive access, here's how I would manage it:
Be sure there is only one account on the computer--yours. Be sure you choose a good, solid password and DO NOT share it with your spouse.
If he has an account on the computer, delete it.
Be sure your admin account is password-protected. The only way you will see that account is if you start the computer in safe mode and log on as administrator. Don't know if that account is password protected or not, but it should be in a case such as yours. If you neglect this, he can work his way around your security.
Want to be really, really secure? Once you settle the account thing, download the program TrueCrypt from www.turecrypt.org. This will definitely deny access to your computer by anyone! Even if the take the hard drive from the computer, they won't be able to see anything on it. Hope this helps.

How do I turn on my MSI laptop, model #MS-16GN? It's my 13 year old daughter's and I need to monitor.


If you mean set up parental controls, you need to have an account on the laptop under your name with your own password (the next bit s taken directly from Microsoft)

Open Parental Controls by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, and then, under User Accounts, clicking Set up Parental Controls.? 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Click the standard user account for which you want to set Parental Controls. (this will be your daughters account)

Under Parental Controls, click On.

Once you've turned on Parental Controls for your child's standard user account, you can adjust the individual settings that you want to control. You can control the following areas:
  1. Web restrictions. You can restrict the websites that children can visit, make sure children only visit age-appropriate websites, indicate whether you want to allow file downloads, and set up which content you want the content filters to block and allow. You can also block or allow specific websites. For more information, see Limit the content that children can view on the web.

    Time limits. You can set time limits to control when children are allowed to log on to the computer. Time limits prevent children from logging on during the specified hours and, if they are already logged on, they will be automatically logged off. You can set different logon hours for every day of the week. For more information, see Control when children can use the computer.


  2. Games. You can control access to games, choose an age rating level, choose the types of content you want to block, and decide whether you want to allow or block unrated or specific games. For more information, see Specify which games children can play.


  3. Allow or block specific programs. You can prevent children from running programs that you don't want them to run. For more information, see Prevent children from using specific programs.

With XP, all you can do is set up content adviser, which is a bit limited
To do this: Control panel / Internet options / Content / Content Advisor / Then in the box that appears, set the level of safety

Procedure for setting a passcode for laptop so that nobody can open it.


To prevent and secure anyone from accessing your laptop, you can place a Power On Password on your laptop. This Power On Password comes up as soon as you switch on your laptop and won't allow access any access unless the correct password is entered. There are no backdoor passwords to bypass the Power On password to get into your laptop.
You can also place a hard disk password on your laptop and this will prevent anyone from accessing the data on your hard disk, even if they install the hard disk into another computer. There are no backdoor password to bypass the hard disk password.
You may also enable a BIOS password to prevent anyone from changing your BIOS settings.
These passwords are configured in the laptop's BIOS under Security settings.
Once you create these passwords, I suggest you write down these passwords and place them in a safe place should you need need them.

Can i connect ethernet cable to my 6 years old packard bell desktop


As your Laptop itself doesn't have a ethernet card, you can't connect it. But I have a solution, you can buy a USB Ethernet Adapter, which you can buy for a cheap price and you won't need to open up your laptop or any stuff like that. Just plug into your USB port and start working with Ethernet.

It looks like this:

try to turn off security center and any other security software installed in your laptop. if fails. boot to safe mode with networking then try to download again the file. if fails check if other computer can download it successfully using the same connection, router and modem. just to isolate if a security in your router has been enabled.
