CA Parental Control preventing my email access. I never set it up

I have a Compaq Vista system that my son-in-law bought me last year. He put a copy of CA anti-virus on it and it has been working fine up until a few days ago. Suddenly it is now acting like I set up CA's Parental Controls and it is not letting me get to my comcast email account. Neither I, nor my son-in-law ever set up CA's parental controls so there is no password to give it! Is it possible I got a virus that lived only long enough to screw with my installation of CA's security suite? It also won't let me go to Trendmicro's site to do a scan because, it says, it's a ''dating site''!

SOURCE: How do you reset forgotten parental control password?

You can try these codes 2211 or 3308 if they do not work you will need to reset the unit. You will need to unplug it for 45 minutes that will reset the TV to factory settings. Then the pass codes I provided should work.

SOURCE: Norton 360 Parental Control upon startup

This problem is being faced by many persons and a proper solution has not been reached as yet. What you can do is uninstall the Add-on pack and wait for the update to appear. What else is there to loose, the annoying uninstall problem or parental control (which is only necessary if you have children).

Under the main menu, go to the Parent tab and enter the Master Password: 4357. This will completely clear the present password. You can enter a new one afterward.

Need to set parental controls on alienware m14x


Activate Parental Controls b> Computers are great tools that help us in work, education and entertainment. They're versatile machines and provide great benefits, but that versatility opens the door for users to access inappropriate content. Microsoft Windows offers a number of controls to restrict or entirely block access to many content types. Unfortunately, the Parental Controls feature is not available in Windows XP or earlier systems, but Windows Vista and 7 have the utility preinstalled. You can set up the controls in a few steps and help protect anyone that uses your computer.

Click the "Start" button in the lower left corner of your screen and then click "Control Panel." Click "Control Panel Home" on the left of the Control Panel window, if it is not already selected. Click "Set Up Parental Controls for Any User." Select the account for which you want to set up controls. This is the "User Controls" section of that account. Select the "On, Enforce Current Settings" option on the left side of the window Click "OK." This activates whatever settings are currently on the computer. Parental Control Settings b> Access the "User Controls" section of the account you want to restrict. Select the type of control you wish to alter or put into effect. Your options include "Time Limits," "Games" and "Allow and Block Specific Programs." Windows Vista also has "Windows Vista Web Filter." Restrict when an account may be used under "Time Limits." You can set what hours the account is available for each day of the week. Set game rating limitations. These settings allow you to select which game rating is the highest permissible for that user. Restrict certain programs. You can block the use of whatever programs you prefer, such as video games or Web browsers. Set Internet restrictions. In Windows Vista, you can decide how strict to make the restriction level immediately; in Windows 7, you must first install the free Windows Live Family Safety 2011 suite http://explore.live.com/windows-live-family-safety?os=other Click the "OK" button in the "User Controls" section once you are finished with the control setup.

How can i block certain website (mostely the torrent site)parentally. And prevent from downloading the torrent PERMANENTLY.


I use TrendMicro (about $40/year for three machines). You have decent parental control with it. You may also use "Resticted Sites" settings in Internet Explorer but it may not be as secure for you. The TrendMicro software requires a password to allow settings to be changed...not sure about IE.
