    Thank you ive fixed it =)

    What would be nice, was if microsoft could create a childrens account, one
    where a parent could set the limits. the amount of times my son has filled
    the screen with multiple copies of shortcuts, or deleted things we really
    wouldve liked to have kept (pictures he did with paint when 2 and a half) .
    Access to games, paint and whatever net sites we choose, but please stop em
    being able to fiddle with everything else.

    You need to get a backup policy and put the real precious stuff on CD or
    DVD. Anyone can delete a picture by mistake. Luckily the people were still
    alive and it was a simple matter to take another photograph of them. You
    can set up your computer with a separate account for your child where he
    doesn't have permission to delete your files too.

    Cheers,

    Earle

    This is exactly why my daughter has her on system which I gave her on
    her 4th birthday. It has an auxialry drive which is keyswitched and is
    an exact copy of the original OS installation. Should she screw things
    up beyond the capabilities of System Restore (unlikely but ..) then I
    simply boot to an Acronis disk and clone the auxilary drive back to
    the main system drive. Takes about 10 minutes.
