Return to IE7 to escape inprivate browsing

Specs: Windows XP
Return to IE7 Delete IE8 safely I have reviewed info on inPrivate browser and believe that I'd rather go back to IE7 than monitor my teen reactivating the private browser on IE8. However I don't want to make the OS unstable because so many updates are on IE8. If I thought he would not be able to use inprivate browser, I wouldn't go through all this but he is slick.

If he's that slick, it won't matter what you do with IE. All he needs to do is run a portable browser (Firefox for example) off a USB thumbdrive.

"it leaves no personal information behind on the machine you run it on, so you can take your favorite browser along with all your favorite bookmarks and extensions with you wherever you go"

Honesty is best policy, inform your children that you are installing software to curtail their activities:

Thanks. My issue is that all the blockers I install have an uninstall option right in the computer so he uninstalls. No brainer there! I need one that locks and does not offer the uninstall option right in the program.

We had a thumbdrive sitting around here a long time ago and I wondered what it was for and now I am worried. I assumed it had something to do with downloading music.
So if I go back to IE7 and don't let him get a thumbdrive, will that solve my problem?
