An option in the Web Restrictions settings is localized incorrectly in the Simplified Chinese version of Windows Vista

On a computer that is running the Simplified Chinese version of Windows Vista, you try to configure the Web Restrictions settings in Control Panel to restrict Web access for a specific user. The Web Restrictions page displays the following options:

  • ????????? (Block some Web sites or content)
  • ????????? (Block all Web sites or content)

However, after you select the second option to block all Web content, users are still free to access all Web sites and content.

Note: The Web Restrictions settings can be found in the Parental Controls item in Control Panel.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
