Parental Control settings

I have a "new to me" Toshiba A-15-S129 computer which has a password on the parental controls for internet searching. I can not get in touch with the person who sold it to me. How can I reset or bypass the need for a password? I thought about using system restore to go back to original settings but they must never have set up any restore points. It only goes back to last week when I bought it.
thanks

Can you re-install the OS? Do you have the OS CDs? If yes then re-install the operating system and all the protections will be erased. BUT, do take care of your data. Back it up. Specially the My Documents. And when you have done that, put the restore option on.

I do not have the webcam password . how do i retrieve it


I would suggest just removing the parental controls altogether.
1. Click the Start (Windows 7 Button) Button in the bottom left.2. Click on Control Panel3. Click on Uninstall Software (bottom left of the Control Panel)4. Scroll through the list and find the Parental Software5. Select 'Uninstall' on the top bar, right above the list of software.
Another option would be to uninstall the webcam driver and reinstall as a new piece of hardware. This will make the computer think it's a brand new device and the parental control would not carry over.

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
