Can I disable Parental Controls?

I have Windows Vista Ultimate.
Every time I turn on my computer, a little pop up window tells me to set a
password for Parental Controls.
HOWEVER, I do not need Parental Controls - I am the only user of the
computer and I have not activated the Guest Account or created any other user
account.
How can I stop this annoying pop up window from popping up EVERY time I turn
on my computer? Disabling Parental Controls? How do I do it?

This did NOT work, Dobos, because I have Vista: when I click the account, a
pop-up windows asks if I want to give the account a password... No other
options to turn Parental Controls off are available there. Thanks, anyway...

If you do not want to use Parental Controls, you can Stop and Disable
the "Parental Controls" service to get rid of the pop-up.
