We have to admit that network develops fast but there exists many problems like pornographic and violent information spreading wildly. To well protect our children, we need to control or monitor when they are using the machine. Exactly, Windows 7 provides a feature named Parental Control that can disable certain actions those kids carry out on the computer. In this post, we’ll outline details to change Parental Control settings.

Step three- Select Parental Controls
Step four- Click Create a new user account
Step five- Type a name for the new user account, and click Create account
