Parental Controls fail to work, says Contact Adminstrator

So I've been trying to set up parental controls on an account. Now when I go to parental controls, I click an account and it says that it is unable to make changes to parental control settings, and contact System Adminstrator. It was working fine before, and only started recently. I tried making new accounts or placing restrictions on another account, the error still pops up. My system is 32 bit. What can I do to make it work again?

Parental controls
This feature would be great. But is there a way to set up restrictions on my own account? I cannot afford to lose administrator privileges as I'm the only user of this computer and need to access system files frequently.
