I was wondering, if there were anyway to block all adult content and websites on the net. As of right now i have a younger brother who is very curious, and I fear the dreaded computer std! I just bought a new computer, and i would like it to stay running in tiptop shape!

If you are using Internet Explorer there are controls that you can set the browser. Go to Tools, Internet Options, then set the controls under the Content tab. If you are using Firefox or Safari I am not sure of the menu steps to take but I can tell you that they both have content controls as well.

I would suggest a parental lock software. Not only that this type of application logs on the activity of the people using the computer, but also restricts the access to any website that contains words that could be conceptualized as adult language. In order to filter these sites you have to set up a dictionary. However using the default one would limit the access to many adult sites. These softwares can also prevent the use of instant messengers, allow browsing exclusivelly to certain websites. The most important: nothing can't be changed unless the user knows the administrator password. I used Parental Lock Guard v1.2, but there are many other applications you might want to take into consideration. In your search browser just type "parental lock" or "parental lock software". This will bring up a list with applications and you might choose one that suits you most. Enjoy.
