I have the parental controls set to filter the web both generally and specific websites. Today my boy was caught looking at naked women by his 87 year grandmother. A test showed that the filtering was blocking neither the general nor the specific sites. On top of that, the reports are not showing any logs of the web site activity (they do show the program access activity though).

Does anyone know of a bug, fix, switch, etc? Any suggestions, issues, known problems? I have searched many forums and sites and have not found a similar issue.

Yes it is a limited account. I am getting some blocking of activity, i.e. the wireless switching is asking for administartor password, but not any of the web filtering. I am also getting logging of program activity, i.e. media player and the names of the songs, but no logging of web site activity.

Please go here to learn more about setting up the parental controls.
It is possible that the computer has an infection that is over riding the parental control. If you are sure that every thing is properly set up you may want to go to the malware forum.
Thank you.
