If you need to set up the parental control to the Media center then let me tell you that there is an in built parental control is there which will set up the same for your Windows 7 Media Center. Just go to the task and then to the setting and in the General click on the parental control. Now enter the blocking code for the same and then you will be asked for the content to block the same. I hope you like this. Thanks

When you turn on Parental Controls, only TV and movie content that does not exceed the maximum allowed rating can be viewed. Not all TV and movie content is rated, so you can also configure Parental Controls to block unrated content. When you turn on Parental Controls, you specify an access code that you can then use later to access restricted content or to change parental control settings. It is recommended that you write the code down for future reference.
  1. On the start screen, scroll to Tasks, click settings, click General, and then click Parental Controls.
  2. You will be prompted to enter a 4-digit number to set your code.
  3. Do one of the following:
  4. To set Parental Controls for TV programs, click TV Ratings, and then click Turn on TV blocking.
  5. You can set maximum allowed TV ratings that include blocking all rated programs, programs for a general audience, programs requiring parental guidance, and programs intended for adults.
  6. (Optional) Click Block unrated TV programs to restrict content that is not rated.
  7. You can also click Advanced if you want to adjust the ratings settings for more control. In Advanced TV Ratings, there are five areas that you can set ratings for: fantasy violence, suggestive language, offensive language, sexual content, and violence.
  8. To set parental controls for DVDs and movies, click Movie/DVD Ratings, and then click Turn on movie blocking.
  9. You can also click Block unrated movies to restrict content that is not rated, as well as specify the Maximum allowed movie rating.
  10. Click Save to save your changes.
