Question about PC Desktops

My son is a limited User on my PC (I am the supervisor). I have enabled parental control using Norton Internet Security, but when my son is logged on NIS still shows the supervisor profile and allows him to switch off parental control. How can I fix this. Thanks

    This is very helpful. I hadn't actually noticed that there was a user accounts facility in Norton that could link to the User accounts already set-up in Windows. Thanks.

Currently I have no password for the internet. Is it possible to put one on it?


Once you have logged on to the computer as a user, you have access to the Internet, if it is connected. You need to change the access permission for the standard user accounts, by a user with an administrator account.
You can ban access to Internet explorer as a program, to prevent access to the Internet.

You might like to try a WEB based virus scan before you try a complete restore. :-

Trend Micro HouseCall
Many computer users rely on Trend Micro for their antivirus needs but when you’ve got a virus, sometimes your installed version won’t boot up, so the company’s got a free online scan that can be used by anyone in this situation, not just Trend Micro users. It’s called HouseCall and it’s a free virus scan that you can get right now... just go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com. When you get there, click on Launch HouseCall 6.5 (you have to have Java or ActiveX controls enabled)

Norton Security Scan

If you want to start using this one, first make sure you’re running Internet Explorer 5.0 or above, and then head over to http://security.symantec.com and click Continue to Symantec Security Check:

I Need helpseeting an adminstrator account up on a used computer


Open control panel and create a new user account with administrator privileges. Log off the previous user and logon to the one you just created. Then delete the original user and this should set everything as default for you the new user.

If the password prompt is in a browser ie, Internet explorer or Firefox you will need to remove the addon (sounds like parental controls).

The only way of changing the registered owner would be to complete a fresh install of windows.

Yes, you have to have administrator rights to add/remove programs.

Log out and then log in as administrator:
First you must ensure that the Administrator Account is enabled:
1 open Control Panel
2 open Administrative Tools
3 open Local Security Policy
4 expand Local Policies
5 click on Security Options
6 ensure that Accounts: Administrator account status is enabled


1 open Control Panel
2 open User Accounts
3 click Change the way users log on or log off
4 untick Use the Welcome Screen
5 click Apply Options
You will now be able to log on as Administrator in Normal Mode
