My machine at work is eing used to get onto sites that need not be explained. I put all settings to the highest levels of concern and adjusted my privacy security and content settings to the highest levels and added a massive list in the restricted sites. What else can I do?

You could warn them not to? Remind them that it is a work area.

You can create a limited acount, that will stop them accessing certain computer areas. But password protect yours so they cannot login.

You can get a family filter online, this will treat them as a "Child" so to speak, but it will restrain them from that sort of websites. What anti-virus do you have? I think Norton has a means of putting on a child lock...

Uhhmm... Im out of ideas but if i do find a good program that will help i will post here again, but it shouldn't take much online google browsing to find one. Another good thing though is what you are doing, you are putting them on the restricted sites list...

The only problem is if they wanna be smart, it isn't hard not to take a website off the list, so you need a back-up plan if they are going to do that to you. Keep on blocking them though meanwhile.

Hopefully this helps :) I'll try and get back here soon with more ideas :)

If you use content management software, it is password protected so nothing can be removed or changed except by you. Maybe use a filtered Internet service.
