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,

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.
