Dashboard and Parental Controls

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I was poking around the parental controls under my account to see what they involve... ever since then, the dashboard will not run 3rd party widgets. Parental controls are NOT enabled, yet, it will ask me to allow any widget that I try to add to the dashboard... well, when that happens, the parental controls are re-enabled for my account...

So... how can I fix the dashboard? I have already tried removing the com.apple.dashboard.client.plist and the com.apple.dashboard.plist and re-booted. Issue still present.

This sounds like an issue with the parental controls. At the same time, it might be the dashboard. Even if I change the account to be an administrator, dashboard will still not allow 3rd party widgets to be added.

The other account on the machine is unaffected. It also happens to be an administrator account.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
