SubjectAnyone have young kids? Reply to this message

I am looking into a solution to allow my son to use the computer (probably going to make him his own) but anyways. I let him play on mine and he loves it. The only thing is I am worried about him deleting shit and getting into stuff he shouldn't. Along with browsing porn/getting viruses and shit. He is only 3 (4 in december) years old. I though maybe a limited windows user would work and maybe some vista tweaks to remove things like the run command and all that good stuff... Any ideas?

I found this thing called magic desktop which runs in windows... i remember using this thing in school way back when that had a moc desktop looking thing that was totally kid friendly.

I know i could also do a VM or something along those lines so if it gets jacked i just copy over the jacked VM with a fresh copy but was wondering if any of you have ran into this situation.

I don't want to limit him completely from using windows so that he gets familiar with how it works and such.
