Windows 7: Family Safety issues

Family Safety issues

I have had some problems changing settings in Windows Family Safety. It began a few weeks ago when the kids would find they were unable to log-on during what should have been allowed times. When I tried to change the settings on Time, i could not get access, the time 'blocks' simply would not show up. I have now updated both computers to the latest version of Family Safety, but am still having the same problem with the time blocks, and now I cannot allow any websites. I can get to the page where I should be able to allow url's, but cannot get the cursor to the box to do so, can anyone help?
