acct that I tested with before... clicked "turn on Parental Control" but
then turned it back off and clicked ok... then I restarted and went to
"C:\Users\" and deleted the test acct folder associated with the acct I
made... I disabled the Service "Parental Control" in the Admin Tools, and
tada rebooted again and no popup!
Not sure if this will help you but no harm in giving it a try.
Hope this helps
Yes, this most certainly does help. It appears that you need to turn off the parental control before
you delete a child's account. Otherwise, parental control continues to think it exists, and sends you annoying pop-ups.
An additional bit of information: I did not need to disable the parental control service. (According to the description, the service is only a "stub" that serves to ensure "backwards compatability with Vista"--whatever that means.)
Thanks for that brilliant workaround.
