Enable the Content Advisor in IE. You cannot hae alternate browsers or he/she will use it and circumvent the Content Advisor. Password protect each account and only give him a limited account. Restrict him/her from downloading and installing programs. That will allow him/her to use alternate browsers.

Here's a free program that I use for my kids. It's not completely XP compatible - so you'll have to disable "Fast User Switching" for it to work.

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I use to use this program when I had '98\ME on the kid's computers. Both are excellent but only the first can be used with XP. IProtectYou has a shareware verison too. Be sure you use this one or it will expire after thirty days. I like this one alot.
