Have an administrator and a "guest" account setup (used in an apartment complex as a communal computer for everyone to use), but someone on the guest account  has managed to put her own password on an account.  This was done on the guest's account that has limited access (I'm presuming, got told by one of the admin people there).


Is there some way to put some kind of family security that limits them from doing this and also stopping them from going to porn sites as well?  They have 2 Win 8 machines and 2 Win XP machines, so I'd have to know how to do it on both OS's.




P.S.  Have one of the Win 8 machines at home how and before I take it back, would like to set it up so this "person" can't do it again.  She's done it before and they're not sure how she's doing it.  Or why.
