Well I'm just advising my family on the best situation here, most of the time I'm away at uni anyway so they'll have to sort it themselves eventually! But you guys are supplying me with lotsa nice juicy backup for the new router argument, thanks!

You won't be suprised to know either, they have already been using the restricted account settings in XP, and this has been pretty much uselss in the fight against malware on that machine! Even though if you try and install anything intentionally in guest accounts, you can't! Figures!
