    Parental Controls question

    I would like to limit my son's playing time on the computer but i want him to
    be able to install or change any settings he wants without letting him
    disable the time limit. Is there any way to do this?

    Hello Bart,
    Unless I seriously misunderstood this particular subject: one cannot "install" nor "change any settings" one wants unless one is the administrator. Needless to say, there is no time limit to an admin.
