Windows 7: Windows 7 editions that include Parental Controls

Windows 7 editions that include Parental Controls

Which editions of Windows 7 include Parental Controls? For example, does the enterprise edition include Parental Controls? I am preparing a training session for my coworkers and this is a question that they had.

On the left side of this page it lists the editions that have it, Enterprise is not included

Thanks! I was looking at this page. On the top right it says that it applies to all editions of Windows 7. I assumed that this was incorrect and you led me in the right direction.

Umm, that is a bit contradictive.

I'm downloading a copy of Windows 7 Enterprise now that I will install on a VM to test and verify for certain if Parental Controls is included or not in Windows 7 Enterprise.

I'll report back my findings as soon as I can.

Parental controls are included in all Windows 7 editions. Enterprise is nothing but a volume licensed Ultimate, which also comes with Parental controls.

The correct answer is yes, Windows 7 Enterprise has Parental controls, as do all other Windows 7 editions.

Brink, can you confirm that also the Starter has Parental controls? I've always thought not.

EDIT: OK Thanks for confirming it.

Thanks. I really don't know where I got the idea that Starter would not have it.

Well, since Starter is so limited on what features are included, it wouldn't be hard to think that.
