I have been using iProtectYou v3.06. this is freeware and is very effective. It controls the traffic at the network level so it cannot be circumvented by installing a second browser.

Although iProtectYou is an effective program, there are ways to overcome the block. That software is not a panacea for content filtering.

If an abuser want to violate the rules of internet access there will always be a way to circumvent filters. All we can do is recommend reasonable solutions to the current problem.
What I was referring to, when I said it could not be circumvent by installing a second browser was the block is on a system level, not on the browser level like IE does.
What I did not suggest but I find more effective is to block everything and allow the sites you want the user to have access to. It takes a while to setup but it is much harder to by pass the restriction.
In my case the kids would give me a url to review. If it was OK then I granted access. If not it remained blocked. Verses allowing everything and only blocking objectionable site when and if they are found. This was effective when my then 12 year old daughter tried to slip a proxy site by me.
There are ways to work around the most harden filter if the sites are not restrict to known controlled sites.
I just felt this was a good first step, short of a full blown proxy server and filtering software.

Indeed, programs such as iProtectYou are a great initial first step when blocking children from harmful content.

Great. There is a program that will assist you, locking Window 9x\ME also if you happen to have one of those OS on any of your computers. Core Control 2.0. DO NOT USE WITH NT\W2k\XP\Vista!
Three things to make it tough for someone to gain control of your computer. First, when not needed you should have your computer set to boot only to the hard drive, via the BIOS settings. Second, you should have a lock on the case of your computer. I am talking about a pad lock, not just a BIOS password. Third, only allow permissions that are absolutely needed by the users. If you do not want them installing programs or modifying setting learn how to configure the limited use accounts in windows W2k\XP\Vista.
Nothing is 100%, but you can make it very difficult with some effort.
