I worked on some computers for a friend that works at an apartment complex for some elderly people (60-up) and they keep screwing up the limited account computers by either installing software or getting bugs while going to porn sites, etc.

 

Is there any software or a way to set up a temporary profile that when they log out, it sends the computer back to square one without screwing something else up?

 

They have both WinXP and Win 8 machines.  And I've set up all of them for limited accounts with the additional software installed: AVG, Spyware Blaster,  and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.  I'm stumped, so HELLLLLLLLLLLLP?

I don't want to have to put each website in to block them.  Want to block all porn websites from these computers and keep them from installing software without my knowledge.

 

And having them on a limited account "should" stop them from making their own password, etc., but they must know how to get around it.  Especially in XP.

You can use group policy to restrict access to windows installer and also the msiexec.exe. Also whoever is in charge of the network at the Apartment Complex can block the websites and installation through the router level also.

And you can always create an opendns account and use their dns servers to manage the content as well.
