i'm not too sure whether you can help me with this problem, but i would like to be able to control the adult content coming to my computer. i have the content adviser bar fully to the left on none but it dosen't seem to work that well. so if there's anything else i can do i hope somebody out there can tell me. i have got broadband which probably dosen't help my problem but with three children to protect i would surely appeciate some help, thanks.

Any of the major Interenet filtering programs should meet your needs pretty well. CyberPatrol, NetNanny, and CyberSitter are the major programs. They all do a pretty job, but none are perfect. Some inappropriate material may get by, and some legitimate material may get blocked. Such is the state of Internet filtering technology today.

Also, check if your ISP offers a filtering service. Often it's kept more up-to-date, and will probably be cheaper too. AOL and MSN also offer very good filtering. Unfortunately, I don't know of any good free software.
