    Question BBC iPlayer parental guidance

    I am trying to turn on iplayer parental guidance on all our desktops (Vista IE7). The BBC have implemented iplayer parental guidance by using a cookie which is placed in:

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Window s\Cookies\Low\

    If that cookie is in place parental control is turn on - delete it and it is turned off. Unfortunately copying that cookie to all users profiles doesn't turn parental control for those users. I believe this is because it needs an entry in the index.dat file (although I'm not sure about that).

    Has anyone looked at applying the parental control across a network or as part of an image?

    I'd rather not have to block the whole of the iPlayer site on our proxy if I can avoid it.

    I'd like to do the same thing, but was hoping for a more elegant solution.

    I've contacted the BBC techies, and a "school friendly" version of iPlayer may be in the works some time in the future, but for now I'm under pressure to unban it.

    For Google, I was able to use my content filter to force safesearch on - I'm hoping to be able to do something similar with iPlayer. Worst case scenario, I'll simply ban any page which contains the words "iPlayer" and "Yes, I am over 16"

    If anyone finds a solution before I do, please let me know.
