hi,

i'm having a problem using parental controls in vista (home basic) , i've set up a new standard user account and turned on internet filtering and applied a few URL's, i can see media player streams if they're embedded in the web page, but if internet explorer has to open Media Player by itself to open the stream it gives me a message box saying that it cant open it, and recommends that i get an administrator to turn off web filtering.

this is pretty frustrating, is there a setting i can change to enable this feature, or will i need to install a third party program for parental controls?

thanks

Ben.

not that i know of, i cant see anywhere to disable playing videos in parental controls. all programs are allowed and the only restrictions are web restrictions.
