Install it, make a image of the hdd with something like norton ghost, and then keep it safe, everytime something messes it up, just restore it.
use something like crawler parental control to block access to harmfull sites and porn. (be aware that crawler parental control shuts smbservices (transfer files between network computers)).

but thatīs just me.
