You can try to enable the service and also enable it to start automatically.

• Go to search from the start and Type "services"
• Search for the Family Filter 
• Change the service startup settings.
• You can try uninstall- re-install Family Safety filter to see if it repairs the service.

The Microsoft Family Safety is from Windows Vista to allow the parents to put limitations on the way their children used the computer and let them track all the activities of their children. So I would like to know if you ever touch the settings on it? Such as enabling the service or make it to start automatically? Click Start and then type services and locate for the Family Filter and then amend the service settings when starting up. Or try to uninstall and then reinstall the Family Safety Filter.

Also, you can try to make another user account with administrative rights and check if you will still receive the same error. Just go to the User Accounts under the Control Panel and then click on Manage another account and click to create new user account. Don't forget to choose Computer Administrator when prompted for privileges.
