"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

if you use windows xp, i think the easy and cheap way to do it is just to change the History folder's permissions, only adminsitrator (parents) have full control, the child has only WRITE and MODIFY permissions. this makes the History folder acts like a hole to the children, you can drop something into it but you can not get something from it.

hope it helps,
