Fixing Mountain Lion Runaway parentalcontrolsd

We upgraded a machine to Mountain Lion (10.8.2), but found that parentalcontrolsd was running constantly with high CPU usage. The steps to correct the problem were found on the Apple Support Forums.

  1. Disable parental controls on all users.
  2. Delete the folder /Library/Application Support/Apple/ParentalControls
    Please note that this command is a little dangerous.[code lang=”sh” light=”true”]$ sudo rm -rf "/Library/Application Support/Apple/ParentalControls"[/code]
  3. Restart Mac.
  4. Enable parental controls again.
