Windows Family Safety

I currently have Windows 7 Professional on a laptop connected to my works domain when I am in the office. I also use this laptop at home. After installing Windows Family Safety Beta, when I try to set time limits for my daughter I get a message telling me to upgrade my OS to Windows 7. Help?

You could uninstall the software, then restore your system to a date prior to your original installation.

I have used Cybersitter in the past, and it has worked well (fee-based sw).

**EDIT** Actually this message is probably coming from the sw you installed. First just uninstall it and see if the message still appears. Probably it won't.

Hi, jim6799.

A long-time friend has the following as a signature:

Quote:
Beta. Software undergoes beta testing shortly before it's released. Beta is Latin for 'still doesn't work.'
I agree with Lemur and suggest that you uninstall the beta software. It is never advisable to run beta software on a production machine. (You may find that the released version will work: Windows Live Family Safety)

Thank you both for taking the time to reply to my issue. I will attempt to uninstall the beta.

Thanks again!

You're welcome.

If you decide to install the released version of Windows Live Family Safety, let us know if you receive the same message.

No option to uninstall

Hello friends,

When I go to uninstall windows live essentials beta, there is nothing to uninstall. There is nothing in the file directory when I go to Start:All Programs:Windows Live. I'm not sure how this is possible because I can run family safety, windows live mail, & windows messenger. Any thoughts?
