Clever Kids and PCs

The other evening I left my Vista PC running and visited the bathroom.
When I returned my 19 month old grandson was kneeling on the chair and on  the monitor was a full on DOS screen with System Restore waiting for permission to run.
All turned out OK but how do these kids acquire such knowledge at such an early age Huh

I don’t know the answer but my grandson of a similar age managed to change the password and lock his mum out of her Live Messenger account. Took her ages and quite a few emails to M$ customer support to get back in again.
Regards, P.

Thats why I have fast user switching enabled. As soon as I intend to walk away from the PC I hit the switch user option so I get the login screen back. Without the password, no-one can upset my pc!
Very clever kids tho..
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Humpp!! you don't have to be 19 months old to lose/forget/delete passwords...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
