    I have a young daughter who uses a vista ultimate PC.

    I've set up parental controls, but I'm most concerned about Instant
    Messaging, web cams, and IM chatting with strangers, etc...

    I don't want to restrict her use of it, except for the logon hours allowed.
    But I do want to use the Instant Message Tracking in the Activity Viewer.
    She's using Windows Live Messenger, which I should assume be compatible with
    this feature of Vista, yet the Activity Viewer for Instant Messaging is not
    showing any tracking of IM's or Webcam usage.

    If I log into her account and set the Keep records of conversations in
    Messenger, there's nothing preventing her from turning this feature off when
    she logs in.

    Can anyone give me some ideas on how to take advantage of the Instant
    Message tracking in the Activity Viewer, without allowing my daughter to
    change the settings of her own Messenger profile to prevent this?

  4. Im trying to create a presentation to for these parental features, and I have
    found absolutely nothing about this issue. I think Microsoft royally screwed
    up here. I think it is rediculous that they can not even address this issue
    in any forum, blog, or even this discussion group.
