microsoftIf you know the Internet a little bit, you should also know that it is not a secure place for children at all. That’s why Windows Vista, among its features, has the Parental Control which lets you filter those websites your children are going to view while surfing. Here is how to activate it. By the way, before setting it up you have to be sure that Windows Vista is password protected so that nobody, apart you, will have full access to the Parental Control features. To set up a password for an account follow this procedure:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Click Control Panel.
  3. Click Add or Remove User Account under User Accounts and Family Safety.
  4. Create a new Account and create a password for it (this account is for you).
  5. At this point create a new account for your children by following the same procedure. If you want you can create a password for it but it is not mandatory.

At this point you can create a filter in the Parental Control and be sure that nobody will manage to delete it.

  1. Click Start.
  2. Click Control Panel.
  3. Click Set up Parental Controls for any users.
  4. Click on your children’s account.
  5. Under Parental Controls, click the radio button On to turn on the parental controls.
  6. Click Windows Vista Web Filter under Windows Settings.
  7. Now click the radio button Block some websites or content.
  8. Check the box Only allow websites which are on the allow list.
  9. Click Edit the Allow and block list.
  10. At this point you should enter the addresses of those website you want to block.
