Learn how to set up and use parental controls in Windows Vista to monitor your kid’s computer usage.
Do you know EXACTLY what your kids do on the computer?
Do you know every website your kids have visited, all the conversations had by IM or e-mail, music listened to, software used, or settings changed on the computer?
Does your computer block unacceptable web sites, let you control how long and at what times your kids can use the computer, what software they can use, or present all of this data in an easy to read and organized report?
All of these capabilities and more are included with Windows Vista. This guide shows you how to implement these Parental Controls and monitor your kid’s activities after Parental Controls have been implemented.
- Turn Parental Controls On: How-to turn Parental Controls on.
- Web Filter: Restrict and monitor what websites are accessed.
- Block Programs: Block certain programs from being used or installed.
- Game Ratings: Control what games can be played by rating.
- Time Limits: Set when and for how long a computer can be used.
- Activity Reporting: Know EVERYTHING that goes on with the computer.
Remember: Parental Controls alone won’t protect your kids on the computer. You have to monitor what they are doing with Parental Controls and deal with issues that come up.
