Chapter 18: Managing User Accounts and Parental Controls
7. By default, when parental controls are turned on, Windows Vista blocks certain
types of web content automatically, based on the web restriction level. You can
choose one of the following web restriction levels:
High
Blocks all web content except web sites approved for children. Your child
can then access only children’s web sites and web sites you specifically des-
ignated as allowed.
Medium
Attempts to block automatically unratable content and web sites that
include mature content, pornography, drugs, hate speech, and weapons.
You can also block or allow specific sites.
None
No web content is blocked automatically. You can block specific sites by
adding them to the block list.
Custom
Allows you to choose the categories of content that Windows Vista should
attempt to block automatically. Categories you can select for blocking
include pornography, mature content, unratable content, sex education,
hate speech, bomb making, weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and gam-
bling. You can also block or allow specific sites.
8. To designate a site as blocked or allowed, click the “Edit the Allow and Block
list” link. To allow a site, type the web address and then click Allow. To block a
site, type the web address and then click Block. Click OK.
9. File downloads can include malicious programs or types of content you don’t
want your children to access. To block file downloads, select the “Block file
downloads” checkbox.
10. Click OK to save your settings.
Configuring Time Restrictions
Time restrictions control the times when a user can use the computer by blocking or
allowing specific hours of the day. If you’ve turned on parental controls, allow hours
are permitted by default. You can configure time restrictions by completing the fol-
lowing steps:
1. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
2. In the Control Panel, click the User Accounts and Family Safety heading and
then click User Accounts.
3. On the User Accounts page, click “Manage another account.”
4. Click “Set up Parental Controls” and then click the account you want to restrict.
