Looking for good parental control/filtering software

I am looking for some recommendations on some good parental control software. Specifically, I am looking for software which allows me to set individual user profiles for different individuals in my family, so that varying levels of internet access can be set based on a certain child's age/profile. Software that would allow me to either set website categories allowed or blocked for each individual, plus the ability to override the default if necessary and allow certain sites. Also the ability to set only certain website access for young children.

I did have Norton Internet Security 2006 which allowed this, but when I upgraded to 2007, the parental control does not work the same way and I can only block or allow entire categories for ALL users, not individual ones.

Anyone out there with children of varying ages (teenages down to toddlers) have any ideas?

Plenty of software - try Googling.
Or there's the ultimate parental software going - sit yourself in front of the computer with the children and/or move the computer into the front room. :whistling:

Might look over this:

Some listed here at PC mag's site:
Parental Controls

Don't have any kids young enough to monitor so can't help in selection.
