Re: Parental Control Password not needed
Recommendation 1: Create and use a password (OK you don't want that).
Recommendation 2: Create and don't use a password for logon: See in help and
support 'automatic logon', basically you create a password then set the
system to automatically logon with a specific account and password. If you
do this, WRITE DOWN THE PASSWORD, because you will not be using it on a
day-day basis you WILL forget it when you actually need it!
