Don't let kids anywhere near a pc, I left my grand kids playing Moose on the Loose on my old XP box one day while I went out only to discover on return that they had about 20 instances of it open and they had crashed the machine, needless to say the words never again sprang to mind.

I could try for hours with umpteen button presses to wreck it without success, they could do it in four.

If you have 3pc's then windows live onecare is good and they have a 3 month free trial at the moment its easy to use and you can control the other 2 pcs settings from the main pc - installed it for a friend and was VERY impressed - looked how much it is for 3pcs for a year and its £15 inc VAT from a good etailer or £37 from microsofts website.

I'm sure people can do that.
But the thing is, these days, teenagers are way smarter then before.
Like then can get program from web that tells/cracks/changes the password of user account and use it.
I thought they could if they wanted to, right?

Best firewall

I have used Comodo firewall. It has merged as antivirus program with Firewall Pro. It is good software.
