Help with locking down a WinXP Guest Account..
For content. So I've noticed some downloaded porn on my guest computer at home and I want to lock it down. Running WinXP SP2, IE 6, and Firefox. Wouldn't have even noticed but when I was downloading the latest updates for my ClamWin AV a bunch of video files showed up in the Firefox download window. Wouldn't have figured they showed there??
Anyway, I also noticed some kind of spyware kept popping up that Windows Defender (default install) was trying to remove (can't remember the name off hand). Windows Defender is having problems removing it so I downloaded AdAware and it's running a scan right now.
So IE was locked down with the Parental Controls set pretty high. The video downloads were done through Firefox but it doesn't offer any kind of parental or content control. Any ideas for plugins I can add to Firefox to control site ratings, content, etc.? I might remove Firefox from guest access and let everything be done through IE so it can be controlled.
Also, the guest account should be locked down from installing anything right? I remember I installed a couple of web games on the guest account and I had to log in as admin with a password to install it. Would there be anyway around that? I do not want anything being installed without my permission or knowledge and want to cover all my bases.
Any help would be appreciated.
