Sorry, but none of these worked on my Windows 7 system. I am the admin on the computer and have my kids set up with their own accounts, I want to turn this feature off, disable it or something to stop getting the pop up.

Asking your own question helps the community help you specifically with your issue. Remember to include all the details (your version of windows, specs of your system, any error codes etc...) that you can when you start your own thread.
When I click on my account photo, it says, 'Parental Controls cannot be applied to your own account "Ashesh" because it is an administrator. Do you want to create a standard user account and apply parental controls to it?'. What to do? Please help me.
I am fade up of pop up window all the time when I open my computer.

Ultimately I found that the problem was not being caused by Parental Controls, but Content Advisor. Once I had disabled that (through Tools, Internet Options then the Content tab) all was again well on my laptop. I wonder if there's a prompt whilst setting
up Parental Controls which directs you to enable Content Advisor? Don't do it!
**to create a back up of these settings before you change anything**
Right Click and select Export, to create a quick restore file, call it ParentalControls and save it to your desktop in case you need to revert back to these settings later. double click the file on your desktop later to restore the old settings.
Now, back to the registry, select the Parental Controls folder AKA KEY
Right Click and select Delete. You will be asked if you want to delete this key and its subkeys, so bite the bullet and click Yes.
Windows will then tell you it couldn't delete the Parental Controls KEY, but it does delete all the subkeys that relate to your parental control settings - basically a clean slate.
Restart your computer.
You should be free from the nagging balloon telling you about Parental Controls and admin passwords.
(Disclaimer: following this advise requires registry changes to your computer, exercise caution; these steps were tested on a Windows 7 Professional edition installation.)
