  1. Parental Controls


    We just bought our boys lenovo laptops. We need to block adult content and disable certain websites. We have logged on as administrators on the laptops. We have updated all content restrictions on microsoft.com and its still allowing adult websites and websites that we’ve put in manually. How do we control the websites if putting them in the family settings in microsoft is not working?

    :)

    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
