Problem with UAC and Parental Controls

I have just installed 7 ultimate, and done all the win updates, but i have a problem with User accounts.
I can change my Picture and password, and type.

But if i click on UAC, Manage another User account or parental controls links nothing happens...

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums Pedro.

It sounds like you may be using a Guest account rather than a Standard or Administrator account or the account us corrupted.

Each account has its own user profile and it's possible there's something not right with the profile.

Create a new Standard account to see if that replicates or cures the problem.

If it's the latter you can then delete the old account after you've configured the new one to your liking.

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.
