Grandkids and computer's

A word of caution to those of you that may be dumb as I. Don't let your grandkids fool with your computer. I made the mistake of letting my 12 yr old grandson fool with mine several weeks ago. First thing he did was set up the internet with a password protect,,,,in his name!!!!!!! Then he wouldn,t tell me what it was, confidential you know. So I showed him and deleted what he did,,,,I thought! My computer has been a wreak ever since. Then I remembered something about restoring to an earlier date but couldn't remember how. Finally figured it out last monday, at home. I don't have internet at home so couldn't test it. Finally got a load out tuesday evening but not anywhere near a TA truck stop where I get my service or any coffee shop I knew of. Well today I made it to the TA in Kingman, Az and lookie here,,,,IT WORKS!

From now on it's the same for him as his 4yr old sister, sit on my lap and don't touch anything I don't tell you to. Interestingly he did have an idea about it. He said "grandpa, seeing as your laptop doesn't work right anymore, why don't you get a new one and give me the broken one?". Ya, right!

All her idea. She'll spend hours upon hours infront of my computer if I let her and give in, which I always do BUT the computer is in plain view and I'm always home in case of problems.
