Setup Limited User or Parental Control

Postby admin » Wed Sep 03, 2014 12:31 pm

For Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows Vista Home Premium, or Windows 8

Use the Parental Controls feature. Go to Start > Control Panel > User Accounts And Family Safety and do these steps:

Create a new Administrator-level account that no one will normally use. You do this in Start > Control Panel > User Accounts And Family Safety. Tip: it can't be named "Administrator" because Windows owns that name already. I usually name it "Admin".

After creating an Administrator-level account, change all of your daily-driver account(s) to Standard Users if they aren't already. You do this in Control Panel > User Accounts and Family Safety > User Accounts > Change Your Account Type.

Enable Parental Controls on each Standard User account, and click Allow and block specific programs, then choose This user can only use the programs I allow, and click "Check all" once the list is populated.

That's it! Anything that's not on the list will not be allowed to run unless you approve it.
