:huh: Can anyone please help. my stepfather has had a stroke and is constantly messing up his computer. Is there anyway that I can stop this from happening. he adds programs that are not needed, reinstalls programs already installed, multible times. Not sure of howmany copies of the same email address he has. I have tried system restore but some of the programs he puts on the computer doesnt allow me to completely restore it. It takes a long time to undo what he does. He has Vista installed. :huh: Thanks
