get an antivirus that runs in windows background, so everything that's gonna run will be examined, note though, this will slow down your overall computer speed.

another way: explain to your dad that viruses which your sister downloading will someday destroy his valuable data, then ask him to advise your sis :D

If you are running a software firewall, I think you may be able to stop certain programs like kazaa from connecting to the internet with it. I'm not really sure about it, because I use a hardware firewall that's in my router.

yeah , just install ZoneAlarm and deny internet access to kazza or any other application.

Yup, under programs just "X" Kazaa and ZoneAlarm won't allow it to connect. You can grant, and reject access to anything running in your computer that connects to the internet using this free program http://download.com.com/3000-2092-10153456.html?tag=lst-0-1

Also, you do have some sort of an anti virus program running in your 'puter right? If not I'd invest in Norton Antivirus 2002. It's a very good antivirus program with easy updates using its own updater program.
