parental Controls= Insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I gave my kids some parental controls and now they somehow turned into admins
and put parental controls on me! How do you make sure a certain user does not
have access to Parental controls at all!!!!!!!! And if possible how can i
delete parental controls!!!


Thank You,
Eriq

Hi Eriq,

LOL, the little buggers.

You can try this. Make sure that they are in a "Standard" user account and that you have your "Administrator" account password protected with one they cannot easily figure out. Now go into Parental controls and restrict access to what you do not want them to access. They will not be able to access anything that changes the system for all users or what you restricted without entering your Administrator password.

You can turn Parental controls off in the Control Panel. However, if you allow them access, then they can just turn it back on again.

Hope this works for you,
Shawn

I am having trouble with the parent controls. I have them set to off in the
control panel. I have a box that pops up everytime I load a new page. It
says "Microsoft Windows content advisor" and it says it is blocked b/c the
page has not rating. I have to enter in my password EVERYTIME and then click
another button about continuing a step. I want the parent controls to GO
AWAY. How can I go in a reset it all???? It is the biggest hassel!!!!

Hi Crow,

Not a problem. You can disable the Service "Parental Controls" to get rid of it. Take a look at this link for how to disable the service. If you ever want it back, just enable the service again.

Help!

I was using my computer when the charger broke. I forgot my old password for the administrator account, and the parental controls are blocking me from downloading ANYTHING! I want to erase the Parental Controls for GOOD!
