Parental Controls are insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Administration' started by parental Controls= Insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Jul 29, 2007.

  1. I gave my kids some parental controls and now they somehow turned into admins
    and put parental controls on me! How do you make sure a certain user does not
    have access to Parental controls at all!!!!!!!! And if possible how can i
    delete parental controls!!!


    Thank You,
    Eriq

    Hi Eriq,

    LOL, the little buggers.

    You can try this. Make sure that they are in a "Standard" user account
    and that you have your "Administrator" account password protected with
    one they cannot easily figure out. Now go into Parental controls and
    restrict access to what you do not want them to access. They will not
    be able to access anything that changes the system for all users or what
    you restricted without entering your Administrator password.

    You can turn Parental controls off in the Control Panel. However, if
    you allow them access, then they can just turn it back on again.

    Hope this works for you,
    Shawn

    I am having trouble with the parent controls. I have them set to off in the
    control panel. I have a box that pops up everytime I load a new page. It
    says "Microsoft Windows content advisor" and it says it is blocked b/c the
    page has not rating. I have to enter in my password EVERYTIME and then click
    another button about continuing a step. I want the parent controls to GO
    AWAY. How can I go in a reset it all???? It is the biggest hassel!!!!

    Hi Crow,

    Not a problem. You can disable the Service "Parental Controls" to get
    rid of it. Take a look at this link for how to disable the service. If
    you ever want it back, just enable the service again.
