    I was wondering if there is a way to specify a different password for
    overriding parental controls settings, than the administrator password?
    Parental Controls is a great idea, not only for Parents but also for bosses
    who want to cut on PC maintenance due to employees caused problems (when they
    install free software carrying spyware, for example).
    But if you have to type the password over and over again, sooner or later
    somebody is going to figure that out. The resulting damage could be reduced
    if the password were different from the admin one. Just a thought...
    In addition, you wouldn't have to reset permissions on folders and other
    things you need to do when the admin password is changed in a networked
    environment.
    Just a thought...I might be wrong.
    Any comments?
