Parental controls on guest account
Why can't I set up parental controls on the Windows Vista default guest
account?
I can only create a new account (the third one, since there is an
administrator account, default guest account, and this new one), and only on
this new account can I set up parental controls, (but not on the default
guest account).
Why is this?

Re: Parental controls on guest account

I share your frustration. I have been into the Guest account and found
that no web content is available at all: EVERY web site I visit is
blocked due to Parental Controls... and yet I am told that parental
controls cannot be applied to the guest account. It's this sort of
contradiction which will drive me towards a Mac when I next replace my
computer! Can anyone help?

Hi RichieL,

You can only apply Parental Controls on a "Standard User account". The
Guest user account is blocked by default and cannot be changed in
Parental Controls.

For more on how to use Parental Controls, see:
