Hi there, a friend installed webroot on my computer a while back, and I have a feeling that there are parental controls in place, however I have no way of asking my friend how to undo this is he is out of the country for a few weeks. Could someone please tell me how to find out if indeed there are parental controls in place, and if so, how do I go about removing them? Thanks! Vicki

hi Vicki. Which webroot product did your friend install? And what leads you to believe there are parental controls on your computer now?

I'm not entirely sure, as I'm not well up on computers, but it says Webroot Software Inc, then sspsetup1. I know I also have a Webroot Spy Sweeper shortcut icon, so don't know if this is the same thing, as they have seperate shortcut icons on my desktop. I also have norton systemworks 2005 anti virus installed. The reason I think parental controls are in place is because one particular website address will not come on our computer. The strange thing is, the web address comes up for other friends on their computers. Is it possible that access to one particular website is blocked, and if so how can I undo it?
