    Parental controls

    Im restoring a pc for a family member and need a few suggestions. What is a good parental control app that will only restrict websites on a specific account? (the child's)
    Something that wont require her to put in a code for every "safe" site would be best. And Free would'nt hurt either
    Thanks Guys

    Norton Internet Security 2009 has been rewritten from the ground up and is MUCH better on RAM, which was always a major kick against Norton. In addition, there is a free add-on/ download that implements website restrictions.

    Have you heard of kidsemail.org? It’s a great site which makes internet experience for kids very safe and interesting. It is very reassuring for parents to know that they will be in complete knowledge of their child’s internet activities. The site allows a child to receive emails from those in their contact list, email a copy of incoming messages to the parent, remove images within emails, remove links within emails, etc. and other such features to safeguard internet access.

    Are separate user accounts not an option? Couldnt she set up a user account for herself and 1 for the kid and have the parental controls on the kids set up differently?
