    Family safety web filtering not working


    Hello friends,
    I am trying to use family safety options in windows 8 enterprise 9200 no users are Microsoft account.
    it is all local account (the administrator and the standard).
    every thing is working good time limits, app limit except web filtering I don't know why any one have an idea?
    I set the web filtering to child but the user still can open sex websites. any body can help?

    Hello stlony,

    I find that most filters are not very effective with those type of settings since it doesn't help if the site doesn't comply with the ratings standard. This is a bit more work on your part, but I find that using step 8 Option One in the tutorial below to set the filter to only allow access to sites that you have listed. This way they can't go anywhere that's not on the list.
    If need be, the standard user can send you requests to add sites to the list as well to help make it easier for them and you.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Hello Shawn,
    It is not like you think dear I tried to just select the allow list only and it also doesn't effect, I think that because I turned user control off but I switched it back as it was recommended but also didn't work so I hope to know why just web filtering is stuck

    I'm not sure why it's not working for you then. I can only recommend to triple check each and every setting against the tutorial above to see if you may have missed one, or may have not set one properly.

    I found the problem, I doubt in Kaspersky antivirus, when I remove it I found every thing is working fine like a charm.
    So it appear that it is a Kaspersky problem not windows problem I will try to update the version to see if it will work or no.

    Thanks for help. (I will mark as solved )

    Hi.
    I have had this problem also with kaspersky internet security 2013 in that it doesn't allow microsoft family safety to work.
    This bug could be because it has it's own parental controls which do basically the same web filtering operation.
