Happy Holidays to ALL!!! :thumbsup:
now then...
I have windows xp and a 14 year old boy with a propensity to look up porn.
I have tried to use the content advisor feature but it blows or im profoundly stupid.
I set settings for language, violence, nudity and sex to allow for 3 out of four (4 being the worst)
and it blocks all sites. I cant even access the most innocent of sites.
What measures can I take to put a stop to bad sex sites for my child.
Thank you for reading this, look forward to all responses.

I use the content Advisor for my 6 year old twins. I block everything and put the approved sites in the allowed category. I review then add as I find them kid friendly.
The filters only work with those sites that wish to use the system.

That doesnt help much but i appreciate your response.
Isnt there a more effective way to stop my child from looking up porn other than systematically approving every site on the internet?
There has to be a way other than staring over his shoulder 24-7
\please help

There is a product I use to use that has some sites pre blocked and features that allow you to restrict access, like turning the internet on and off at certian times. iProtectYou
As far as baby sitting the kids, that is just the choice I made. It just depend how important it is to block the sites. I don't sit and wait for them to pull up sites for me to look at. If there is a site they want to see, they write it down and I review it. I make the changes remotely from my computer, via RealVNC. I can view their computer and take control remotely if I see something I down like. We all have our own computer, 13 total. The use is a privilege not a right. They go against my rule the privilege is revoked.
Mine is only one way, not right or wrong just my way.
You should also configure his user setting so he cannot download programs. I can't go into how but there are programs that can defeat any security that you can put on a pc.


Merry Christmas.
