Tomorrow marks the first day of summer on the calendar, even though most kids have already started their summer vacations. Do you have parental controls set up on your VAIO PC yet? A computer can be a very tempting thing for younger people and Sony wants to help give you, the parent, control over when your child can log into Windows and for how long, allow you to block certain types of programs and allow you to block video games by title and rating.

Peg’s here to help you set up your parental controls on your VAIO PC with Windows 7 operating system and get you on the road to safeguard your child and your computer.
