    Facing error during setting the parental controls in Windows Vista

    I logged in to the administrator account in Windows Vista System. When I clicked on the controls to set the parental controls, it gives me the message “Cannot set parental controls , contact Administrator”. I am the administrator and still asking to contact the administrator. What might be the problem? Please, help me!

    Hello friend...

    you can get over this by disabling the UAC (user account control)

    orelse

    I would suggest you to create new administrator account and later log into the new administrator account and try setting the parental control..

    And check if it works...

    And you can check your parental control settings using this below link..
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...ental-Controls

    Hope this may help you...
