You can Re-install the original windows operating system using the CD that came with the PC. just put in the Windows CD then restart the PC,while its starting up, press F8 or F12 repeatedly until it boots from the CD. then follow instructions.

Make sure to save data you need on the Desktop and the OS Drive to another hard drive partition, so you wont loose the data.

you'll need to re-install all extra programs currently on the PC that didnt come with the original software

I have tried multiple ways of trying to bypass parental controls and windows 7 but nothing works


Hi,
as you know on Guest account you can't do much of the stuff, so use the Administrator's account or create a new one for yourself.

Hi, Well windows has 1st launched this service with vista..on per user basis. It was not mentioned by you do u want a solution while logged in as administrator or user.

  • Click on the create a new user tab
  • In this screen you would type the login name for the new user account that you would like to create. We also suggest that you leave the option labeled User must set password at next logon checked so that when the user logs on for the first time they will be prompted for a new password enabling them to keep their password private.
  • When you are ready to create the user, you would click on the Create Account button to finish the creation process. You would then be brought to the Parental Controls page for that particular user. J
Just press the OK button to get back to the welcome screen. Now from here you can keep the parental control setting as per your requirement on the following Global game rating systems setting, Family Safety Options, Activity Report Reminder, Web Restrictions Page etc

I have an iMac. I want to put parental controls on my daughter's account. I have set up my daughter's account and cannot access Safari from that account


I take it that you have set up the account within the accounts control panel and you have setup the account as managed with parental controls. Click on the account (to change it you will need to enter an administrators username and password). Once in the account click on the "Open Parental Controls) Click on the account and from there you can under system determine which applications your daughter can use. Under content you can restrict what websites she can use. and the other items are fairly self explanatory. The logs can allow you to check what websites have been accessed. Hope this helps.

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.

Administrators password


if you have another user account with administrator access you can either remove the password i the user account field or you can try accessing the files of that particular user account and transfer it and just erase the user account and create a new one. vista does not have any backdoor to access using the disk unlike xp
