Start by creating a 'User Account' for your grandson and then apply the 'Parental Controls' built into Windows. This is not foolproof - your daughter will need to set up a user account for herself and ensure that grandson doesn't get hold of her password - and kids are good at that !

 

You have my sympathy. A friend of mine had exactly the same problem with his two grandsons, except they had made no bones about it. He prefers IE, the kids were using Firefox and had a porn site as their homepage ! I was doing some maintenance on it for him, and I prefer Firefox !

Children today are much more tech-savvy and I have real empathy for your daughter. It's almost a full-time job just to monitor children's activities in this tech gadget society.

 

I agree with Chris in the initial steps and would encourage you to 'bone-up' on as many tutorials that may apply. Most of these will give instructions to walk you through the restrictions that you choose to impose.

 

This would be a start;  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Set-up-Parental-Controls

 

Best of Luck

Plumber,

I concur with Chris, regular user accounts for the kids, admin account with strong passwords for adults. I have been using Open DNS for years, you have to setup and account but it is free for home users. I set it up on my router so smart phones using my wireless are also blocked. It is a little painful to configure but works as advertised, I have my network protection set  to low which works for me. I have been using the free version located here;

You can set it up on your PC, or your wireless router.

Routers;
