This is part of Vista and most likely specifically the parental controls.
It may not hurt though to run your system through a malware check to make sure. With your other topic I closed about no restore points there could be a possible connection. I suspect that you have some malware on your computer causing issues that we are not able to solve through means we can use here in the Tech Forums. I suggest you read the 'Start Here' topic found HERE. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT post the logs in this thread.

If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

HijackThis! isn't a program to use, if you don't know what you're doing. :)

jds63 I agree with Jaycee on this one and unless you are experiencing any issues the file is best to leave alone.
I only suggest the malware steps as a precaution if you are experiencing issues with your system and more specifically your internet.
