The Parental Controls service runs as NT Authority\LocalService in a shared process. It shares an executable file with other services. If the Parental Controls fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows 7 startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the WPCSvc service has failed to start.
Parental Controls will not start, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is stopped or disabled.
