Parental Controls

The Parental Controls (WPCSvc) service provides backwards compatibility for Windows Vista parental controls. If you did not use Windows Vista parental controls, this service can be disabled.

This service is installed by default and its startup type is Manual.

When the Parental Controls service is started in its default configuration, it logs on by using the Local Service account.

The Parental Controls service is dependent upon the following system components:

  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
  • DCOM Server Process Launcher
  • RPC Endpoint Mapper
