    Hi @Javier Fidhel

    It sounds like the parental control service might be corrupted or disabled. You can try to fix the parental control service by following these steps:

    1. Make sure your daughter is signed out of her account.
    2. Sign in with an administrator account and find the folder that contains the corrupted files. There are two ways to do this. The easiest way is to enter the complete file path: On the Start screen, type and press Enter.C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Parental Controls
    3. Delete all the files in this folder, except for .ParentalControls.activity.xml
    4. Restart the computer and sign in with your daughter’s account. The parental control service should be working again.

    Hope the information is helpful.

    Best Regards,
