It has nothing to do with the parent control.

I had the same problem and the solution is very simple your anti virus blocked the game just check the vault of pottencial harmfull files and one of them should be from GTA just restore that file and the game will run again with no problems :)

Just be sure that the anti virus won t think that file is harmful again.

Cumps Nitrooo
