Hi there Huntress Chasee, I searched a solution that may help your problem.


Locking the taskbar I just an easy way, but it does not prevent you from others using your pc for it is easy also to unlock it.


1. Right click on taskbar and click lock the taskbar.

But for you to prevent your children messing around your computer, try to set password on your user administrator.


1. Click on Start>Control Panel>User accounts and Family Safety>User Accounts>Create Your Password.

2. Input your desired password, confirm it.

3. Make a hint, just in case you forget your password you can have a hint of it.


Hope this idea helps.
