I'm currently using windows 7 home premium.
I'm looking to create another account on my computer for a person whom has basically never used a computer in his life. I want it to just have the bare minimum of functionality: basic programs like wordpad/paint/etc., internet browsing (Firefox), and access to programs I've whitelisted.
A Guest account would be an ideal choice right? However, I've had experience in the past where even a standard user account can install software as long as it does not fiddle with the registry or something (Chrome being an example) bypassing UAC completely. In short, I'm afraid that this user can accidentally get malware/spyware from browsing the web (or install malicious software) and it might go on to infect/hijack the entire computer.
Is there any way to create a secure account that will prompt/prevent anything from installing?
Thanks in advance.
