hey guys,
my kids use my computer from time to time, but a couple of times now they have managed to infect it with malware- my question is, is there some sort of firefox add on, that asks for a password , and if none is entered, it boots in some sort of child mode?  i really dont wanna keep dealing with malware. i had seventy trojans found by malwarebytes after their time on here..

Moved to Desktop Computing as this is not really a Windows question.

Look at using something like Microsoft Windows Live Family Safety to implement Parental Controls in your PC, no only one specific application.

Note to use Parental Controls you will create a new login for your kids. Make it a non-administrator account. You can use Windows 7 Parental Controls (control panel) or add the Family Safety app for increased control.

Also make sure UAC is enabled in their account and they don't have the Administrator (or your) password.

I'd say Windows as the post was on originally posted in that forum. OP should let us know what version though.
