My daughter hands me her laptop and its all messed up. to the point i had to wipe and factory install. i did see that avg was disabled, windows security essentials was barely running and no firewall to be seen. I hope she didn't turn it off and what ever she picked up did that, but i was wondering if there was any way to remove the option to disable? if not any thoughts would be great! i have avg, mbam and mbae running on it at the moment. win 7 prem 64 OS.
Is your daughters account local admin? If you want to restrict what she can do, then the first step is to make her se a normal user account.
