ESET parental control not working

Q: ESET parental control not working

i just installed eset 7 30 day free trial and turned on parental control for default user I set age to 14 but it is not blocking any site in the list

Preferred Solution: ESET parental control not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Enable the Content Advisor in IE. You cannot hae alternate browsers or he/she will use it and circumvent the Content Advisor. Password protect each account and only give him a limited account. Restrict him/her from downloading and installing programs. That will allow him/her to use alternate browsers.

My 12-year old son just downloaded AIM to chat with his friends, which I don't mind. I do mind him accessing AIM Today which is a browser with no parental controls that comes coupled with AIM. He used to use Yahoo as his browser which I have set to "teen" which limits access to inappropriate content. I uninstalled AOL explorer, but he still has access to AIM Today. Don't know if it can be separated from the Instant Messaging feature. I've seen the software packages out there that allow you to monitor IMs and sites visited, but I would much prefer just getting rid of AIM Today. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have set up standard user account on my PC for grandson but I am having problems applying parental controls.
I have downloaded ?Windows Live Family Safety? and selected the items I think are appropriate but when I log into my grandson account I am able access very adult sites very easily. When the account boots up a pop-up appears at the lower right of the screen advising that adult sites are blocked and monitoring is on but clearly this is not so.
I have read the tutorial supplied by this site ?Parental Controls ? Setup and Use? and what happens to me differs from that described. When I select my grandsons account at ?Control Panel ? All Control Panel Items ? Parental Controls? ? I am taken the ?Windows Live Family Safety? site and not to ?User Controls? as described. I am never presented with opportunity to enforce current settings.
I have really run out of ideas and would greatly appreciate some help please.

I don't know if anyone can help as I haven't a lot of information.
A friend of mine, who has Windows XP, wanted to put some parental control on his PC.
He left clicked somewhere and found a list with privacy on that he left clicked on. He had to type in a password and then re-enter the password for confirmation, he was then asked to put in a 'hint' to remind him of his password. He has done all of that but now when he wants to access the internet and he is asked for his password he is told it is not valid and he cannot gain access to the internet.
Is there anything that he can do to remedy this?

Well I haven't downloaded anything recently, so this can't be from a virus. I just tried to go to a website, and it says I cannot go because of a parental block with NIS(Norton Internet Security). So I opened up Norton, and the parental control is on (I didn't turn it on) and there's a user account, with a password, and I have no idea what it is. This is my own computer, and I'm the only one that uses it. I've tried going to add/remove programs and clicking change, but since I'm not on a "supervisor" account with NIS it doesn't allow me to do that. (I saw a fix on another forum involving doing that and resetting the password...) I can't/won't do system restore... Any ideas?

We have a 15-year-old son/stepson who is with us a few days every 2 weeks and want to install some parental controls. I found the categories and selected settings (eg, limited restriction, full, none, etc.), includin full access on user-generated websites (which I thought might cover facebook info), then input facebook as an unlimited access web site. However, that measure apparently did not override other limitations in enabling access to facebook. The site has foul language and who knows what else, but we were going to allow him access to facebook (and my space), just no other sexual, gambling, etc. sites.

How can I do this? Are the other settings overriding my entering facebook as an approved site? (At one point, we were able to login to facebook, but then view nothing and, of course, input nothing).

Thanks so much. Any help appreciated.

Hello Debbie, and welcome to Vista Forums.

Usually it will be more effective to check the Only allow websites which are on the allow list box to block all websites except for the ones you allow by adding it to the white list instead. The filter just can't catch everything by only blocking a few sites or type of sites.

Hello all

I have discovered that the web restrictions I set up on my 5 year old son's account aren't working at all. He only goes on the BBC cbeebies website at the moment, and I set the controls to "Only allow websites which are on the allowed list", and only added the cbeebies address to the list, but it is still possible to browse anywhere. I then tried "Block web content automatically", and set this to high, but it still allows me to browse to exactly the sort of website I don't want my 5 year old to see.

As an experiement, I set the "Can (name) play games", to "No", and tried opening Solitaire, but this part of the parental controls IS working, because it wouldn't allow this.

Also, activity reporting is set to "On", but when I check the activity report, both the "Top 10 Websites Visited" and "Most Recent 10 Websites Blocked" are completely blank, even though I have browsed many websites in an attempt to get them blocked, when using his account.

Please help

A:unlocking parental control?

If she has forgotten her password and didn't create a password reset disk, then there is nothing she can do. If she had a system backup made before the Parental Controls were set, yes, she could restore back to that (I doubt she makes backups, though).Otherwise, her only other options would be a clean install or a factory image restoration (only available if manufacturer provides it, have to check documentation that came with computer).Due to the Rules set forth for Bleeping Computer, we cannot help you "crack" the password.No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

I hve had a minor annoyance with my system since it arrived. I came with some type of parental control installed which blocks some words but not others I would expect in the same vein.

For example it blocks "nude", "erotic" and "porn" but not "pornography" or "sex".

This makes it awkward some timed for example in following up on news stories that use these words.

The unusual feature of this is that it works on Firefox and Internet Explorer but not Compernic Agent Basic.

We have no kids in the household and no need for parental controls. The Vista and firewall controls are disabled.

I am using a Dell Inspiron 530 with Vista Ultimate 32 that is up to date as far as I know.

What can I do to correct this?

A:Unwanted parental control?

If you've got admin rights on that machine, you should be able to find the parental control app and simply uninstall it. Try checking in Control Panel, "Programs and Features" - can you see anything listed in there that sounds like a morality enforcement mechanism?

If not, it might be implemented as (separate) add-ons for IE and FF. Try going through the list of add-ons in each case and temporarily deactivating anything you're not sure about.

A:get rid of over protective parental control

My son has a PSP 1000 and he seems to use it to acces the internet via WLAN.
Our family has a "Seimens Gigaset 504 AGU" router which also wired to a desktop computer.

The problem is that I SUSPECT that my son has been viewing inappropriate material on the PSP, but I have no proof that he does, because he deletes the search history and web history from the browser.

Why do I suspect him is because he acts strange when I ask him to show me what he is doing on the PSP and shuts it down imediately.

Can anyone please suggest a method that can let me gather proof without using any kind of physical force, maybe a keylogger for a psp, or an application that logs whatever website users visit over a WLAN network.

It would be good if one can find an application that logs whatever website users visit over a WLAN network.

Hi everybody,

I'm a new user to Vista (just one week with a Vista-Notebook) and trying to find my way around ... no worry, I've been working with computers for years, but some features on Vista are new to me, like the parental control ...

And there is my problem:
I enabled parental control, everything looks fine. However, the URL's are always shortened if they contain a "www.". So like
www.server.com (which I want) it updates the blocking-list with server.com and apparently allows all adresse ending in server.com like aaa.server.com or bbb.server.com ... which I definitely don't want.

Ist there a way to get an URL on that list "as is", no fiddling around with it through Vista ?

Hi guys,

I decided to test out the Parental Controls on my Windows 7 Ultimate computer.

When I deleted the account and disabled the parental controls all seemed to be back as normal. However, whenever I start my computer a notification pops up in the taskbar reminding me to create a password to enable the parental controls.

Is there a way to turn off this bubble. It is probably something simple that I overlooked.

Hi all, hoping someone can help, please!!

I've bought my son an Advent K100 laptop for his birthday (he has Aspergers and i needed a laptop with really good parental controls, one of his fascinations is computers!) with Vista home edition on.

I basically wanted to block the internet from him to start with, and not let him fiddle with any settings (like i have disabled the wireless card so he cant set internet up on his own), so i'm Administrator and dear son is a user.
I also ENABLED his options so that he can install his games and play them, but this ISNT happening-only I can play the games. I dont know what else to do.......whatever anyone suggests (fingers x'd please) i MUST have internet blocked.....dear son is a proper little hacker who understands these things better than I.
The ultimate result I want is for internet to be blocked from him, settings changing blocked from him, but him to be able to install and play his games. Any ideas? Thanks for reading, Emz xxx

Also, I understand that updates for Vista are vital, so given that i've disabled dear sons internet, can i download (& save to memory stick) and install updates on MY laptop and install on his via memory stick? Would this work?
