Security Question

I want to limit our son's computer use. Is there a way that we can give him a limited account with a pw that we control? As is, once he's in, he goes to User Accounts and gives himself a new pw and thus can come and go as he wishes. Thanks.

Yes. You'll need administrator right to do this.

Go to the control panel-->user accounts-->if he doesn't have his own account, create a new one-->make it a limited account, not administrator-->if he already has his own account, change it to limited-->click on each user account, and create a password-->click on 'change the way users log on-->check the box to 'use the welcome screen'
