    I've been trying to run a program in the admin account (only account on the
    computer) and vista keeps popping up a warning box that parental controls are
    not allowing the game to start. However, there are no parental controls set
    up on the computer. How can I get the game to run? I've tried running it as
    admin and it does the same thing.

    Hello z00girl,
    First here is a link to enable the real built-in administrator account.
    When you get that, logon to it and you can run the program. Also, stay
    in this account and make a careful investigation on your own admin
    account. One can't set up parental controls on an existing admin
    account, unless the acount was initially an user account, parental
    controls were installed, then the account was elevated to admin via
    Change Account Type. Based on that wild supposition, change your own
    admin account to user acct., remove the controls ( if any), change it
    back to admin account. Ok, here is the link
