Change Administrator user accounts to Standard user accounts for Norton Family on Windows

If your child creates a new Windows user account and logs onto the computer with that account, Norton Family cannot monitor the child's activity. To prevent new Windows user account creation, you must ensure that your child has a Standard user account.

If your child's Windows user account has Administrator privileges, you must change it to a Standard user account.
