Check that the game can run without being administrator. If the game can
only run as administrator, then you're sunk. (Note the difference
between "install only as administrator" - which is fine - and "run only
as administrator" - which is not).
As administrator, install the game "for all users", then change the
gateway and DNS entries under Start - Control Panel - Settings - Network
- Local network - Properties - TCP/IP - Properties to point to localhost
127.0.0.1 or a fictional IP address.
Do not tell the child the administrator password.
Create an unprivileged account for the child.
Check that the child's account cannot change the gateway or DNS.
Note that the child will still be able to access the local network (in
the same building) using IP addresses, but no further.
