    Why can't I set up parental controls on the Windows Vista default guest
    account?
    I can only create a new account (the third one, since there is an
    administrator account, default guest account, and this new one), and only on
    this new account can I set up parental controls, (but not on the default
    guest account).
    Why is this?

    I share your frustration. I have been into the Guest account and found
    that no web content is available at all: EVERY web site I visit is
    blocked due to Parental Controls... and yet I am told that parental
    controls cannot be applied to the guest account. It's this sort of
    contradiction which will drive me towards a Mac when I next replace my
    computer! Can anyone help?

    Hi RichieL,

    You can only apply Parental Controls on a "Standard User account". The
    Guest user account is blocked by default and cannot be changed in
    Parental Controls.

    For more on how to use Parental Controls, see:
