Hi. I'm gettin kinda annoyed evertiem I buy new ink, my kids decide to go on PBS kids, or noggin, or whatever other sites they go on and start printing all sorts of pictures. I'm wondering if there is something out there, just a very small TSR that doesn't take up any resources, and that I don't see running, to make a box pop up asking for a password to access the printer. Anyone know of one?

How do you prevent children from drawing on the walls with crayons? Do you put a barrier between the children & the wall or take away the crayons.


Simply remove the cable connecting printer to PC and only put it back when you want to print something.

If you have created an account for them to use other then your main account with administrator privledges, you could set access permissions to disable them from printing.
