Unable to make changes to parental controls by Kirk L
I am trying to make changes to parental controls. I get an error message that reads: "Unable to make changes to parental controls settings. If this problem persists, contact your system administrator." I am an administrator on the computer. I have tried creating a new account and making changes there and that did not work.

How to unlock protected document by montereynative
I opened an existing document I had saved in Word and when I tried to make revisions, the message came up that the document was "locked". When I went to "help" to see how to unlock it, it says to go to the Protect Document pane and click on "Stop Protection". However, when I go to this pane, there is no option to "Stop Protection" - help! -- montereynative

I thought I posted this but don't see it, sorry of this ends up as a repeat. I have a PST file from another install of Office 2010 Beta that I cannot use because it says I don't have permission.

I log into my laptop as an administrator and there is one program that needs consent through the user account control in order to run. The program is Cisco Clean Access Agent.
