Hi. Do you have a DSL modem and/or router installed? You might just need to reset them. Let me know and I'll give you specific instructions on how to do this.

I see. Are you using IE, or the browser that your ISP provided you with?

Ok. The reason for that is that AOL has disabled it while on their service, because if the teen used IE instead of AOL, then the parental controls would be void, so the child could bypass the controls. In order to keep that from happening, anyone with controls set is denied access to other browsers, and yes, some instant messengers no doubt. If everything works fine on the master account, then we know that it's just the control settings.
