Hi!! I am looking for some sort of filtering tool to put on my machine that will block out access to any "bad" sites. I read about one tool but it didn't say that it worked with IE 7.0. I don't know a thing about any of this stuff except that one of our computers got very heavily infected, probably from going to "dirty" places and I don't want it to happen to the kid's computer.

Thanks

You can also use OpenDNS to replace your ISP's DNS servers. It's free, you have to register to change the configuration data to suit your purpose, although I believe some filtering is by default.
