What program are you using?

If you are using the Windows Vista default parental admin, it is asking for the password of an admin on the PC. This shows up because you do not have administrative privileges on your PC to change the parental settings.

How do I turn on my MSI laptop, model #MS-16GN? It's my 13 year old daughter's and I need to monitor.


If you mean set up parental controls, you need to have an account on the laptop under your name with your own password (the next bit s taken directly from Microsoft)

Open Parental Controls by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, and then, under User Accounts, clicking Set up Parental Controls.? 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Click the standard user account for which you want to set Parental Controls. (this will be your daughters account)

Under Parental Controls, click On.

Once you've turned on Parental Controls for your child's standard user account, you can adjust the individual settings that you want to control. You can control the following areas:
  1. Web restrictions. You can restrict the websites that children can visit, make sure children only visit age-appropriate websites, indicate whether you want to allow file downloads, and set up which content you want the content filters to block and allow. You can also block or allow specific websites. For more information, see Limit the content that children can view on the web.

    Time limits. You can set time limits to control when children are allowed to log on to the computer. Time limits prevent children from logging on during the specified hours and, if they are already logged on, they will be automatically logged off. You can set different logon hours for every day of the week. For more information, see Control when children can use the computer.


  2. Games. You can control access to games, choose an age rating level, choose the types of content you want to block, and decide whether you want to allow or block unrated or specific games. For more information, see Specify which games children can play.


  3. Allow or block specific programs. You can prevent children from running programs that you don't want them to run. For more information, see Prevent children from using specific programs.

With XP, all you can do is set up content adviser, which is a bit limited
To do this: Control panel / Internet options / Content / Content Advisor / Then in the box that appears, set the level of safety

How to set parental block on tv so it cant even be turned on Tv is a proscan 47lb45h


DTV parental controls include blocking of unrated programming, channel-by-channel blocking and blocking by content rating levels. You have control over what information gets displayed on the Electronic Program Guide, and can unlock controls for a particular time frame.

Initially your service uses default settings, which allow access to all programs. Ratings are set from the Main Account. Subaccounts (individual user accounts) can be set up for household members (toddlers, tweens and teens), based on their viewing needs. Once Parental Controls are activated, an icon will appear in the navigation menu.

Parental Control Settings from the Main Account

Press the Menu key on your remote control and arrow to the Settings tab. Press OK on your remote. Enter your Password, arrow to OK and press OK. Arrow to the Parental Control section and highlight Change, press OK. This takes you to the Users tab. Here ratings for Movies, TV and Content are set up along with Unlock Timeout. Each rating has a drop-down menu for age appropriate programming. The Content ratings work in addition to the Movie and TV ratings and let you block unwanted content such as *** or violence.

Tip: The Unlock Timeout lets you deactivate the Parental Controls for 30 minutes to 3 hours and after that time will automatically reactivate parental controls.

To choose your Movie settings, press OK and a drop-down menu will appear. Select the desired rating and press OK. Next you can do the same for TV Ratings, and Unlock Timeout. Arrow to Content Rating. Select the ratings you want to block, press OK and a checkmark will appear. To remove the content rating press OK again. Ensure that the Enable Parental Control box is checked. If it is not checked, Parental Control is not enabled. Arrow to Done and press OK, which takes you back to the Preferences tab. Arrow down to OK and press OK. You will be returned to your program.

NOTE: Any Parental Controls set will only take effect if you check the Enable Parental Controls option on the Main Account and exit the Preferences tab via the OK button. Otherwise, the default setting is in effect, allowing the viewing of all programs regardless of settings for individual user accounts.
How to set up Subaccounts (Individual User Accounts)

Press the Menu key on your remote control and arrow to the Settings tab. Press the Select key on your remote. Input your Password, arrow to OK and press the Select key on your remote. If the electronic keyboard appears, just press the Select key on your remote again. Arrow to the Users tab and press Select. Arrow to Add, press Select. Arrow to New Login and press Select to display a digital keyboard. Use your remote's Arrow keys and the Select key to enter a Login Name. When done, arrow to Enter on the digital keyboard and press Select. The new Login Name will appear in the box.

Arrow to and choose the desired Movie Rating for this User and press Select. Now, arrow to and choose the desired TV Rating and press Select. Arrow to and enter New Password, Select. Arrow to Confirm Password and reenter what you typed in the New Password field, Select. Arrow to Allowance. If you would like to set a spending limit for Pay Per View events and movies, enter the amount and press Select. Arrow down to Submit and press Select. To restore TV viewing, press the Menu button on the remote twice.

Prevent children from using specific programs
You can use Parental Controls to determine which specific programs your child can use. For example, if you use a program to keep track of your finances, you can prevent your child from opening it and viewing your financial information.
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Parental Controls.?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  3. Under Parental Controls, click On.

  5. Click Person's namecan only use the programs I allow in this list.
  6. Select the programs that you want to allow. If the program you want doesn't appear in the list, click Browse to locate the program.
    Tip
    • Make sure that you select all of the programs that you want your child to be able to run. Parental Controls will block any program not selected in the list......This is what I have for parental controls located in contol panel area under user accounts and parental control just try to undo the control....if it does not work you may need to restore to a earlyer time or even worse use a restore disk and redo the entire machine...if restoringthe complete hard drive remember your windows pass key or you may regret restoring the drive with boot disks. hope this helps.!
