    This cannot be done with local users on a Windows XP system without third party software.  You COULD implement a Windows domain at home, but that can be costly and excessive and a smart kid is going to get around it.

    Hi c_hockland,

    if you use a windows 2000 or above server you do this on the user account itself

    if not

    Obivously, try Jay_Jay's idea, but I don't think it will work on a system not on the domain.  If it does, please post back.
