Re: Help me with Users

Well, that's like "You can't have your cake and eat it too". If you have
an admin account, you can do all the things you described. If you are on
a user account, you cannot. That is the whole idea of making the
distinction so that not everybody can mess with the system. I would say,
give this son enough rope to hang himself. Just make sure he has burnt
the recovery DVDs so that he can reinstall. After the 3d or 4th
reinstallation he will have learned not to mess with the system.
