    Family Safety settings not correct?


    OK, so this title might be a little vague, but here's the problem.

    I re-built an older HP computer with Windows 8.1, and have Family Safety set up on it, Web Filtering, Curfew, etc.

    Through my login on www.FamilySafety.Microsoft.com, I am able to adjust settings for that computer to tell the user their time is up...

    Unfortunately, the computer, set to tell the user to log off at 9PM, is telling the user before 6 PM, that they have 15 minutes left.

    I have checked from the admin account and the Child user's account, what the clock is, timezone, etc.

    I'm completely baffled as to why this is happening, but I need help.

    Well, I got frustrated with this setting and disabled it. Instead, I've written a Batch file to shut the computer down, and have put a task into Task Scheduler to run said Batch file.

    That's Parental Controls, the old-fashioned way.
