If the password for parental control is not specified, each time you open parental control settings, you will be prompted to set a password. It is Recommended that you set a password right away to prevent unauthorized access to these settings. If no password is required, click Cancel.
If upon activating the Parental control you receive the message "Unable to find a key file", it means that your license does not cover the Parental control. In this case, it is recommended to remove the component: Go to Start–> Settings–> Control Panel–> Add and Remove Programs, find the Dr.Web anti-virus on the list, click Modify and follow the wizard's instructions to disable this component.
Use the local access settings to restrict access to resources on your computer - files and folders. In addition, it is possible to prohibit the use of removable storage media and access to the LAN. By restricting access to such resources you can avoid damaging or removing sensitive data by a third party and prevent unauthorized access to confidential information.
The Parental control module allows you to restrict users' access to certain sites on the Internet, local files and folders, local network resources. An administrator can manually configure a list of banned sites or take advantage of the constantly updated thematic lists provided by Doctor Web.
Local access protection and the URL filter are parental control features disabled by default. You need to activate them manually by setting the parental control operation mode and access password in its settings.
The Parental control module can restrict acces to any specific sites or web-pages, as well as to all known sites containing information on certain subjects (such as sites about drugs or weapons, sites of paid on-line games, etc.). A list of specific websites to be blocked is set up by the user; both individual addresses and keywords found in URLs can be specified in this block list. Blocking websites by subject is carried out automatically using the lists, updated regularly by Doctor Web.
If you set a password for accessing the Parental Control, only the computer's administrator will be able to do so after entering the password. If no password is set, then any user with administrative privileges will be able to change the settings.
