Hi everybody,

I'm a new user to Vista (just one week with a Vista-Notebook) and trying to find my way around ... no worry, I've been working with computers for years, but some features on Vista are new to me, like the parental control ...

And there is my problem:
I enabled parental control, everything looks fine. However, the URL's are always shortened if they contain a "www.". So like
www.server.com (which I want) it updates the blocking-list with server.com and apparently allows all adresse ending in server.com like aaa.server.com or bbb.server.com ... which I definitely don't want.

Ist there a way to get an URL on that list "as is", no fiddling around with it through Vista ?

thanks for your help,
Walter

Hi guys,

thanks for your response!

The source you quote, I had already checked on ... however there are no specific details on how - and above all why - Vista manipulates the keyboard input and why finally it DOES INTERPRET the setting and not just does APPLY the URL as given.

a still looking
