Hello,

I like to use PUK at work to limit the amount
of "restricted" sites employees sometimes visit. It
works great (when you hide the tray icon, change the
placement of the shortcut in the start menu, and noone
elso knows which program is doing all this) when you
use wildcards and "suspect" words.

I've recently encountered a new problem though... my
teenage siblings sometimes work part-time at my
office. They are somewhat computer savy and when
they want to look at "ADULT" sites they find the PUK
exe and undo the checkmarks on the popups to be
closed.

Do you know of anyway I can either password protect
the PUK exe or ini files in order to stop them from doing
this? Or is there a file I can make "read only" so that
they cannot unselect popups to be closed. If not, it
might be a good suggestion to include somekind of
protection to limit access to the "popups to be closed"
menu. I don't do any programming myself so I don't
know if that's viable or not... what do you think about the
idea?
