How Do I Stop Certain Sites From

I have a kid who is getting to the point that I want to block sites that he may go to. Is there a shareware web blocker or something. He has been going to a few sites that I don't approve of. Any ideas? I had thought about netnanny. But. That cost money. I already set the content in explorer. What next? :blink:

Net nanney as you mentioned... also, I believe Zone Alarm, McAfee, and Norton firewalls will also filter out unapproprate (or unauthorized) web sites.

 

But they all cost money as well.

 

AOL will also do it, as they filter 90% of the web to begin with. :P

 

 

Pretty much anything that will be any good will cost something... I can't vouce for any particular software, but there are a ton of apps that you can find by searching on google.

 

No matter the software, nothing will work as well as just being there. :)

 

 

Here are a few things:

You can automaticly block sites in windows...

 

Control Panel>Internet Options>Under "Contenct Advisor" Click Enable>Apporved Sites

 

Add the site you dont want him to see click never...

 

Hit Ok...

 

To test it...simply try and look at that site..

lol, how sad, i hope he's not reading this post by his dad :D..

 

anyways, he can always download the free Linux Knoppix OS which can be run directly on a CD without even a hard-drive being installed and it will automatically setup everything for you so he can still surfing the net freely to where he want to go.. Last of all, if he knows how to use newsgroups, mirc, DC++ or any form of P2P program, then there are still ways around :D

 

best of all, you should password lock your computer in the bios too... :sleep: oh, but he can always reset the cmos by using the jumper or just remove the battery.. :P

 

anyways, it is useless to block things where he have already come to the age to know about it.. how many years can you still block it from him? he probably been visiting his friends house lately to check out for more too.. sorry, i'm not trying to be rude but i'm just speaking from experience since i have already been through it :typing:

The time I concerned is when I am not around. Like at work. He starts his first year in high school in a few weeks. I know its about that time. I was just wondering if I could deter anything. Thanks for the info, I will try the stuff out Monday. :ph34r:

my parents Wanted to do the same thing.. i would guess is that give him a very limited user account or basically a guest account, and put a password on ur admin account.. and try to "deter" him alittle that way... so u can install net nanny, and he will have to live with it,.. (guest/ user accounts u cant dl/ install anything)/

 

 

but i guess, since hes going into high school, hes gonna learn whatever he doesnt already no already from there... so there isnt much of a point...

 

u gotta let him grow up sometime... ;)

 

u could just talk to him about the things he does on the net. and try to talk him out of it or atleast reason with him some how?

...sorry dad, but your kinda late..

 

I'd say that stuff comes in the middle of 8th to even late 7th...

 

Best thing you can do if talk to him and let him look at maxum mags(non-pornographic mags) or something so at least he looks at women infront of you rather than behind your back
