    About possibility that administrator is not my parent?


    I'm now really confused at this. I have an administrator account as my usual working account which is logged in by Microsoft account A, and I recently opened a standard account which is logged in by Microsoft account B, to play Forza Horizon 4. But I want to restrict my time on game, so I asked my girl friend a favor to compose a family with account B, where she is the parent and B is a child, with time limited set to my favorite.

    Then the question comes as when the time is out, there pops up a window to let my choose from, switch account or "parent is at home", then if I choose "parent is at home", it let me easily use my administrator verification to extend time for B, the game account.

    This is definitely against my will, I need the restriction of game time be done to the extent that it needs to bother my girl friend to extend more time.

    The question is, an administrator needs not to be a parent, why he/she has the access to extend time for a standard account, and how can I reach my goal?

    :)

    Parental Controls aren't working

    Hi,

    The issue could be because of corrupted files. I suggest you to delete the corrupted files yourself and see if it helps

    to resolve the issue, please follow these steps:

    1) Make sure your children are signed out of any monitored accounts.

    2) Sign in with an administrator account and find the folder that contains the corrupted files.

    There are two ways to do this. The easiest way is to enter the complete file path:


    • On the Start screen, type C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls and press Enter.

    • If you’d rather open each folder individually, follow these steps:
    a. Go to This PC

    b. Open C:, open the
    ProgramData folder, open the Microsoft folder, open the
    Windows folder, and open the Parental Controls folder.

    3) Delete all contents of the Parental Controls folder.

    This will delete any corrupt files. Your settings will be downloaded again from familysafety.microsoft.com the next time you sign in.

    Hope it helps. Reply with the result and I'll be happy to help you further. Thank you

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    About possibility that administrator is not my parent?

    Administrator level User

    Got the laptop. It's a Lenovo G500 so possibly has Lenovo stuff in the way? Anyway, booted it normally and it opens into a regular account without admin privileges. Rebooted it into Recovery mode (per Option 5) and get Lenovo logo and Preparing Automatic Repair message; then Select Account + "You need to sign in as an administrator to continue but there aren't any administrator accounts on this PC". There is an option "Forgot your password or don't see your account?" but selecting that brings up a screen which should list admin accounts but there aren't any. Pressing the only option on that page Restart leads eventually to a BSOD with Stop code: 0xc00002e3 (which I know is misconfigured o/s or missing or damaged system files).

    Can anybody suggest next steps in resolving this?
