Parental Controls

Posted: 06-17-2006, 06:14 PM
In regard to the pop window that comes up when a standard user is trying to
visit websites not on the allowed list and/or not in allowed category.
It gives 2 choices: Always Allow or Don't Allow; would you be interested in
adding a third option, namely "Allow Once"?
This would allow a one time access for websites I don't want on the allow
list nor I want to block.
What do you guys think?

That is a good idea - submit this as a sentiment and see it gets in!

I'm having the same issue. Only user accounts that are setup as an
administrator can use live messenger. As soon as I set the account type to
standard user in Visa, Live Messenger can no longer connect. Any help is
appreciated.

everytime i try and set up parental controls it does not direct me to the
relevant section. when a user account is selected to set parental controls i
keep getting the following message: Unable to make changes to parental
control settings. if the problem persists see your systems administrator.
i am the computer administrator and have no idea why it does not direct me
to the relevant section. any one have any solutions?

I've set up the parental controls; however, can they access the parameters
i've set up and change them since they have their own account?

If so, how do i change it so they can't

They can only make changes if they are logged on with an Administrator
account.

The recommended setup is to have the children using a Standard User account
and the parent having an Administrator account with password protection.

I have the exact same problem. Any one else please? I have existing accounts
that have parental control and I can modify their settings. I just can not
add parental control to any new accounts.

Yea, I've got the same problem too. As a result, I can access the web, but
no other user on my computer has access (all users except the administrator
has all web accesses blocked). I'm just as frustrated as you. I really
don't want to have to reload vista.
