Default WXP, able to lock programs?

I want to be able to lock a certain program so that it can't be uninstalled. When people bring kids over they don't seem to understand me when I say I DON'T want any of the kids playing on my computer. For goodness sakes we have another computer BETTER than mine for them. But anyway, last night they deleted one of my anti-adware programs and I'm afraid it might be something more important next time. Is there a way to do this with Windows XP or if not, is there a good program that I could use?

I want other people to be able to use it, just not uninstall it.
