Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how you look at it, your children are smarter than you & they will find a way around your block. If they boot with a Live CD, your filter will be worthless. That's just one example. I remember someone saying that his daughter told him if they switch the keyboard to Spanish & back again, it killed the filter at her school.

You're better off teaching them how to be street wise.

You can use the Content Advisor in Internet Explorer (if that's the browser you use) or something else from here:

Be advised, however, that virtually nothing out there will catch everything your kids may try to access, and a lot of "acceptable" sites will likely be blocked. Most "computer-savvy" kids can also figure out ways of bypassing filters as well.

It should work for a week or two.
