Set up a Limited user Account and call it "Visitors" or something - do
NOT be tempted to use the built-in Guest account for ANYTHING.

Dear GURU,

If you are looking for trouble :-) you do it as explained below.
Advice for others, don't try this at home.

1. Open Computer Mangement console
Start - Run - compmgmt.msc

2. Navigate to "Local Users and Groups"
- Enable Guest Account
- Add Guest to Administrators group

3. Open Explorer and navigate to the root of your C:\ volume
- Open Properties
- Click Security tab
- Set Everyone - Full Control
- Click Advanced
- Click to select "Replace permission entries on all child objects"
- Click Apply.

4. Do not apply service packs and hotfixes.
5. Do not install antivirus and antispyware.
6. Connect your computer directly to the Internet, do not use NAT device and
firewall.

Have fun, GURU.

Dude, that's stone cold. The only thing missing is a link to Kazaa's
website. :)
