    Another computer question:

    If I wanted to hide Internet explorer on my computer (so the kids can't use it). How would I go about doing this.

    I know how to delete the shortcut off the desktop, but how can I remove it from the start menu and relocate it somewhere buried in a different folder?

    I have Windows XP Professional 2002


    Thanks for your help!

    just delete all references to it in the start menu and create a shortcut anywhere you want to this location

    C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

    Why not just set the kids up with their own logons and severely limit what they can do?

    They all have their own MSN accounts and restrictions are in place. It is just the Internet Explorer program that anyone can open and have instant access that I was concerned about.
