Default password to block downloads?

hello all,

I use Win xp pro,im wondering if there is a way to set up a password so that others can not Download stuff off the net with out it.

My kids and brother-in-law DL stuff all the time and i get tons of trojans and junk that i just dont need,i dont want to block the whole computer from them,just the ablity to DL programs.

I've looked all through Firefox,IE and xp but just cant seem to find an option to do this.

Why don't you just make them their own accounts, delete any links you have for Firefox, and disable downloading from IE's options? That's what I would do, as well as make them a User only under the account.
