You can also block access to TV shows online. To set up Parental Controls, follow the below instructions.
- Click Start.
- Click Control Panel.
- Under User Accounts and Family Safety, click Set up parental controls for any user. (You may need to provide the administrator password at this point.)
- Click the standard account you wish to setup controls for. Or, click Create a new user account.
- Under Parental controls, click on enforce current settings.
- You can now set Time limits, limits for Games, and Allow or block specific programs.
