I really like my computer, but my brother spoils the fun when he downloads junk, such as Roblox, on my computer. I know there's probably an easy route that I've forgotten, but is there a way to make the user put a password everytime you install something? I've tried making the current user standard, but i only put the admin password for only a little number of stuff!

What OS are you using?

You should be able to easily block him from download/installing software via access rights.

Admin users can install software. Standard Users no.

I think you need to read up on and consider "Group Policy" settings.

You as "Admin". All others as Standard with limited rights.

I'm sorry, but i didn't understand the group policy idea. Also, the standard user is able to download (SORRY, GOT NO CLUE :() I'm using Windows 10 Home!

You are welcome.

However, please keep it in mind that although Roblox "doesn't modify OS" per se, it (and other software downloads) may and often do try to sneak in other products. The subsequent installation process will attempt configuration changes. E.g., modifying your starting webpage. Or automatically launching some app at boot time.

If the downloader is not paying attention or just does not care then all sorts of junk will end up being installed.

Watch for those little "check" boxes that automatically opt you in for something or automatically opt you out of saying "no".
