    Setting up parental controls on Windows 7 according to Game Rating

    My laptop is currently running on Windows 7 and my kids use it for playing games. They log into the system with standard accounts. I need to set up parental controls on the system based on Game Rating as I want to restrict them from playing games for adults. What are the steps to set up controls for that?

    Go to the bottom part of the desktop and make a single click on the ‘Start’ button. When you can view the start menu, click the ‘Control Panel’ option from it. Find the ‘User Accounts and Family Safety’ label from the window pop up on the screen. You can find ‘Set up parental controls for any user’ option below that label. By clicking on that option, you can view ‘Game Rating Systems’ option on the right pane. This will show up a list of game rating system on the screen. Navigate through that list and select the radio button next to the rating system you need. After that, press the ‘OK’ button located at the bottom part of the screen.

    Hi.

    To block games by age rating

    >>Open Parental Controls by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then, under User Accounts and Family Safety, clicking Set up parental controls for any user. *If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    >>Click the name of the person you want to prevent from playing games.
    >>Under Parental Controls, click On, enforce current settings.
    >>Click Games.
    >>Under Can* person's name* play games?, click Yes.
    >>Under Block (or allow) games by rating and content types, click Set game ratings.
    >>Under Which ratings are ok for* person's name* to play?, click a ratings level.

    Thank you.
