Bought my son a netbook Samsung N220 for his 14th birthday.
I also have this machine.
On mine when i start up there is just my name that i touch and then enter my password.
I really wanted it only to be him on his machine, however i do want to put some parental properties on. (yes i know some may think i am spoiling his fun but there's a lot on the web a 14 year old shouldn't be seeing and he will have this in his bedroom. Up till now everything has been done downstairs within my sight.)
Am i right in thinking i will have to be listed as the main user i think they call it the administrator and then create his account. I was hoping it would just be him on the screen but that we could put parental controls on that within his account.
Basically it would just be nice for him if i didnt show up on the start up page or whatever it is called.
Please don't misunderstand me he is a good kid and I trust him but when it comes to the sex stuff he is 14. I dread the sleaze he could find on the net but i also realise he will be very inquisitive which is perfectly normal. In my days you had to sneak a look at the book called the joy of sex in the local library.
Thanks i would really appreciate sensible answers please.
