Parental PC Control

Windows 7′s Parental Control allows us to limit which sites our kids may browse, what programs they can run, and how much time they spend on the computer. These days it seems that our children pick up technology much quicker than their parents. They are savvy when it comes to understanding PCs and software. Thankfully, Microsoft has built in controls to give a little bit of authority back to the parents.

Tip: Parental Controls are part of the operating system and can be accessed through the Control Panel. You can easily access the different controls that the feature allows you to do. You can apply parental controls differently for every account on your computer.

Our knowledge on the Parental Control application will help you through the settings that you choose for your child’s interaction with the home PC.

Some of the options that can be used are:
  • Programs Allowed - you can choose which programs can be run under your child’s account.
  • Game Time Limits - a time limit can be set on games, as well as what games the child is allow to play.
  • Certain times may be set when your child is allowed to play games.
  • Web Filtering - a separate download from the Windows Live Family website will enable you to restrict websites that your child is allowed to see. Management of restrictions are done at the Windows Live Page enabling you to set various levels of content filtering or switching to predetermined child friendly sites.

Gary Ward, of Broken PC Herts was able to visit me within a couple of days at home to take my hard drive from my computer away, which had failed., to reboot it.

He cleaned, tuned it up, so it works SO SO fast now. Even without me asking him, he installed a fabulous new version of Microsoft Office Outlook (to replace Open Office 2003). He's great - you wont find anyone better to fix your PC, honestly!
