Parental Controls

If you would like to choose what people who use your computer access, such as what websites they’re allowed on, how long they’re allowed to use the computer, as well as receive logs of what users are doing, and are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, perhaps you should try using the built in Parental Controls.

Parental Controls are included in the Home Basic, Home Premium, as well as Ultimate versions of Windows Vista, as well as Windows 7.

With Parental Controls, you can view activity reports of what users are doing and then modify settings based on those reports.

You can also set time limits as to when users are allowed to use the computer, with the default setting being that users are allowed to use the computer during all hours of the day. You can set the time that a user is allowed to use the computer by simply clicking on the time on a grid. Parental Controls can also be enabled or disabled.

Also, you can set limits on web browsing, as well as which games and programs can be used. You can also block games and programs, as well as websites from being used.

If you would like to use the Parental Controls included in Windows Vista, you can do so by going to the Control Panel and then clicking on “Set up parental controls for any user” under the “User Accounts and Family Safety” section.

If you would like to learn more about Parental Controls in Windows Vista, you can do so at the Parental Controls section of the Microsoft Website.
