Re: How to stay safe?

Personally, I wouldn't be without:
Spyware Blaster
Super Antispyware
An AV of your choice
Prevx
Zemena

I like to think that I have a well balanced system with layers of things that might help. But, if these are teenagers, they probably know more than the parent, so no matter what you put on, they'll figure out how to get around it. The lessons begin way before now and it sounds as if you are cleaning up a block head's system.

Age is a very high price to pay for my maturity. If I can't stay young, I can at least stay immature!

The time comes when you must take responsibility and tell this relative or whomever it is that you will no longer clean up their system/repeated messes. If they have to pay for someone to do it, they'll soon get the idea one would hope, unless they have money to burn.

Agreed. When one has to spend their own time and/or money they tend to learn quicker.

Are all of them Admin accounts? Change them to regular and let Dad be the only Admin.

unfortunately in windows, admin accounts are "regular" accounts.
Even Dad's should be a LUA, with a special administrator account to be used when necessary.
