add the domains of the credit card billing people and there is no way to send your credit card details ;)

or add the sites she goes to to buy these books

Aside from blocking an access to credit card billing side, wouldn't it be easier to talk it out? :ermm:

I used to work for the credit card company behind Federated Department Stores. If we placed a "Check ID" status for purchases, you could no longer use the card for any internet purchases. I am not sure if this works with other credit cards, but its worth a shot.

i managed to solve the problem with a program called 'keystroke'

it looks out for key combinations and then performs an appropriate action.

I entered all the missus credit card numbers in the program and told it to shutdown IE when the first 8 numbers are entered !

voila
