  1. Cannot access some programs because of family restrictions


    I removed myself from a Microsoft Family and tried to log into my Microsoft account on a new computer. Previously I was registered as a child but I currently cannot download some software because of the family restrictions. I double checked, I really removed myself from the Family but the system requires me to get a permission from the adult.

    :)

    Restrict program access and startup for second user?


    Is there any easy way to restrict program access and startup for second user?

    I need to share my pc for a short time, and would want to restrict what programs show in startmenu and start at boot. Tried a new local account and new family member, but dont see any program restriction controls.

    Was looking also for some software that maybe can control this?
