Hi, could any1 plz tell me how to undo, reset or whatever it is I have to do to deactivate parental control on a windows vista laptop. My friend has it on her daughters laptop and has forgotton her password. It is making it hard for her daughter to do much on the net. Any suggestions would be appreciated! I am also curious as to whether we could restore the laptop to a earlier time-before P.C was activated and if that would override parental control? Thank you, Wanda :huh:

If she has forgotten her password and didn't create a password reset disk, then there is nothing she can do. If she had a system backup made before the Parental Controls were set, yes, she could restore back to that (I doubt she makes backups, though).

Otherwise, her only other options would be a clean install or a factory image restoration (only available if manufacturer provides it, have to check documentation that came with computer).

Due to the Rules set forth for Bleeping Computer, we cannot help you "crack" the password.
