    installing a program for 1 user not 4

    I am 100% new to this forum and windows 8 but have set up my new laptop with 4 users for family but only want to allow 1 member of the family and myself to be able to down load and install programs which gives me two problems M

    My first problem is I don't want to allow my daughter who is the other admin to be able to over right the setting I have set up for the grandkids and allow them to down load and install programs as she will give in to there persisted pleads of "please let me install this game" for an easy life. So can this be solved ?

    My second problem I have come across is when my daughter(other admin) or myself installs a program it also appears on the kids screens. So is there a way to install a program for 1 user only? I use programs for my work which are no use to anyone else within the family.

    hope I have placed this into the right forum but I am going to post the second part within another forum
