Hi just a quickie, I am setting up my sons laptop for parental controls-I have admin, he has user account. I have read the tutorials on here which were great to get me started and I have tried searching the web for help to no avail I decided due to his age (9) I wanted only sites I specify to be allowed.
CBBC, his school website, man utd...you get the picture. I specifically do not want him accessing social media until older. I can still access Facebook on his account! It blocks EVERYTHING else-MSN, even Avast (I had to reset permissions!)
I then tried to name facebook as a blocked site-both www. and the en-gb version of address have been added to the block list-still I can access! I then wondered if it was cached-cleared history, cookies etc-I could still access!
Next I wondered if it was just the log in page I could access-but when I clicked sign up, it allowed me to proceed!!!
Another issue I have had is he was playing on Fifa 15 UT app on the admin account under direct supervision. I cannot seem to share this across to his user account and when I re downloaded onto his account on app store, even after I logged in it did not save his info :/
As you may have gathered I haven't made the switch over to W8 personally, I am OK using W7, and I am finding this VERY frustrating!! Please could you help me, I want to let him use his laptop without me sitting on his shoulder but until I have the restrictions in place he has to sit with me at all times.
Thanks so much for any advice (before I throw it through the window too!!!)
