That sounds like it is working.  What's your actual problem (besides not using complete sentences, with objects for transitive verbs?)  Create it with the proper category, such as 'Windows Vista 8th Grader Premium Ladinum Deluxe'.

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.

How do I remove content control on my pc


Which operating system ??..
To Remove Parental Control Software from Windows XP
Click "Start" and then open up the "Control Panel".
Click on "Add or Remove Programs".

Wait for the program list to populate. Scroll through the list and identify the monitoring web software such as NetNanny, WebWatcher or similar.

Click on the web monitoring software.
To the right of the highlighted software is a button that says "Change/Remove", or two buttons, one "Change" the other "Remove".
Click the appropriate button that will remove the web blocking software.
If you get a pop up asking if you wish to continue, click "Yes".
The Windows Add/Remove utility will proceed automatically from this point on.

To Remove Parental Control Software from Vista or Windows 7

Click "Start", then open up the "Control Panel". A new window will open up, select "Programs and Features".
The heading will now read "Uninstall or Change a Program".


Scroll through the list until you find the web blocking software you wish to remove.
Select program.
The action "Uninstall" will appear next to the word "Organize" in the bar above the program list. Select "Uninstall".


Click Yes when the message box pops up asking if you're sure you want to uninstall the parental controls program.
The uninstall utility will take over from there.

To Remove Parental Controls on a Mac

Open the "System Preferences" folder.
Select "Accounts" under the "Systems" header at the bottom of your screen.


Select the user account name from which you wish to remove parental controls from the left hand column.


Uncheck "Enable Parental Controls".

Change Firewall Settings
A firewall is a security utility designed to thwart electronic access to a network.
Firewalls are absolutely necessary because, without one, your computer is prone to being exposed to Trojans, mal-ware, spy-ware and other kinds of viral infections.
However, in some situations it is helpful to alter the firewall settings to allow certain programs to run without being blocked.
This is important to anyone whom wants to know how to access Windows Firewall and customize its settings.

Go to the start menu and select "Control Panel."
Click on the Windows Firewall icon.
It looks like a brick wall.
Choose either "On," "Block all incoming connections" or "Off" under the "General" tab.
It is recommended to have it on and not advised to turn it off.
Click the "Exceptions" tab to choose which programs you do not want to be protected by the firewall.
Click the empty box to check the programs you want to add to the list of exceptions.
It is recommended to check browsers and file-sharing programs.
Click the "Advanced" tab to choose which network connections you want the firewall to protect.
It is recommended to check all connections because your computer could be exposed to viruses if left unchecked.
Click "Restore Defaults" under the advanced tab.
This may cause some programs to stop working and is not recommended if you do not have experience working with firewall settings.
Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help
Select "Tools>Internet options" Inside Internet Explorer, then click the "Security" tab. Press the "Custom level" button.

I want to unblock my badoo and facebook site om my pc


Step 1:
Block and unblock internet sites using your macintosh computer. It is easy to set up, and easy to change. Follow these steps to determine what type of blocking you want to use, how to set it up, and how to unblock sites in the future.

DECIDE WHAT YOUR GOAL REALLY IS IN BLOCKING SITES. Be clear about this up front so you can find the best solution. Is this blocking for you? Is it for your kids? Is it to keep employees off of certain sites? Answer these questions first before stabbing in the blocking-sites-darkness. To block certain types of sites for all users on a computer or system - use OpenDNS.com, see step 2.

To block specific sites one at a time use the terminal command in Step 3.
To log (rather than block) specific sites use covenanteyes.com see Step 4.
To only ALLOW certain sites use the parental controls option, see Step 5. USE FREE OPEN DNS TO BLOCK CERTAIN TYPES OF SITES FOR ALL USERS. This is a great option for small businesses or households with agreed upon and uniform standards for internet usage. See the link Below. http://opendns.com/ Go to the site (see resource link near the bottom of this page). Click on the 'start using open dns' button. Choose whether you want the blocking to occur at the computer level, the router level, or the server level. Follow the step by step instructions. They have pictures... it really is simple. Best of all, it is FREE! b> TO BLOCK SPECIFIC SITES USE THE TERMINAL COMMAND IN MACOSX TO BLOCK THEM ONE AT A TIME. Few people really want to block only one or two sites. This is a wieldy way to provide internet security. But if that is your specific need this is for you. Another ehow article gives the detailed instructions (it's a bit technical) for this process. So it is linked both in the related articles to the right titled 'How to block access to websites in MacOS X' and in the resource link section at the bottom. TO LOG EVERYTHING YOUR COMPUTERS VIEW, USE COVENANT EYES. This program will log and score every site that is viewed by a computer on which it is installed. It will not allow the internet to run if it is disabled and will send you an alert if it is uninstalled. You set the preferences as to how often to receive reports. Go to covenanteyes.com and click the 'sign up now' button. It will guide you through the process. For around $8 a month this is a relatively cheap option that covers up to three computers. TO ONLY ALLOW CERTAIN SITES USE PARENTAL CONTROLS. If you are using the Leopard system then you can use the 'Parental Controls' feature found in System Preferences. Click on accounts. Check the box for parental controls. You can click on the content tab and then tick limit access to adult sites. You can also use button to add specific criteria to your block. Alternatively, simply add the specific sites you want allowed to the bookmark bar and type in your administrator's password. Then only those sites can be viewed. TO UNBLOCK SITES ON A MAC. To remove parental controls simply return to the systems preference, accounts, then parental controls section. Un-click the parental control box. Un-click any content specific controls. To remove open dns.com simply drag the program folder from applications into the trash. Isn't Mac great?

If you worked at the router or server level you will have to undo those steps and reconfigure your system to allow direct access to the internet. To uninstall covenant eyes you need the password to get an uninstall code. It cannot happen late at night.

How do I encrypt an individual computer file?


Hi brianeckhear

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.
  2. Locate the file that you want, right-click the file, and then click Properties.
  3. On the General tab, click Advanced.
  4. Under Compress or Encrypt attributes, select the Encrypt contents to secure data check box, and then click OK.
  5. Click OK. If the file is located in an unencrypted folder, you receive an Encryption Warning dialog box. Use one of the following steps:
    • If you want to encrypt only the file, click Encrypt the file only, and then click OK.
    • If you want to encrypt the file and the folder in which it is located, click Encrypt the file and the parent folder, and then click OK.
Note that if you allow other users access to an encrypted folder and they put an encrypted file in it then they would need to grant you access to file before you can open it.

Also encrypted files cannot be stored on remote servers unless it's configured as Trusted for delegation. To do that you would need admin access to the domain controller

More info can be found here

I'm not 100% certain but I don't think encryption capabilities are built into Windows Home editions. You could compress the file in this case and password protect it.

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.
  2. Click the name of the person you want to prevent from using specific programs.
  3. Under Parental Controls, click On.
  4. Click Allow and block specific programs.
  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.!
