You need to administer Parental Controls from an administrative user
account. Use Vista's Help & Support to learn about Parental Controls.
BTW, you should not be running as administrator for your daily work. It is
not a secure way to work and if your user account becomes corrupted (not
uncommon) it will be hard for you to rescue the system. The user account
that is for your daily work should be a Standard user, with the extra
administrative user (call it something like "CompAdmin" or "Tech" or the
like) only there for elevation purposes. After you create "CompAdmin", log
into it and change your regular user account to Standard. Then log back into
your regular account.
You would then administer Parental Controls when logged into the CompAdmin
