    I would like to know if there is a way to block ANYONE on my computer from installing a program? I would like to block Ares. My brother keeps installing it while he's on it. I don't really trust the site and on our other computer we started using it and now that computer wont even start its so full of viruses. I don't want that to happen to my good computer. Any help would be appreciated.

    Download the "Setup.exe" file which he does then go to your firewall settings and go to the program tab and click the setup file for Ares and select block, once you block it you can remove the setup file

    I can help more if you specify what Firewall you have

    Another option would be if you log onto separate accounts on the computer then you can set restrictions so he would need an administrator password to install applications
