    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?

    Go Control panel, parental controls...click on your account photo and choose:
    Parental controls OFF
    activity reporting OFF
    i hope this will help.

    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.
