    Help with restricting user access


    I do not know if this is the correct spot for this post or if what I am asking can be done. I have a laptop computer running Windows 8 that has two users and and admin account. The laptop is shared with my family and I am wanting to restrict what one of the users can do.

    Below is a list of things I am wanting to restrict:

    -Installing any programs without admin password
    -User unable to empty recycle bin
    -User unable to access incognito mode in google chrome
    -User being able to delete history in google chrome
    -User accessing incognito mode of IE
    -User deleting internet history of IE by using control+h

    Thank you in advance for any help and if anything else is needed just ask and I will reply as soon as I can.
