ok, thanks. I appreciate all of your help?

Are there any good internet filters that would help with this that you know of? If that would keep inappropriate sites from being looked at then I'll try that as well.

you can try the internet explorer content advisor (i've never used it...so not sure how well it works) by doing tools > internet options > content > then enable the content advisor and pick the things that are allowed and the levels and what not

That would be better. If the kids use another program like Opera they can still surf [bleep] no matter what the configuration for IE is. And even though the tab can be closed off, what is keeping them from getting there in another way, like RegEdit?

http://www.icra.org is a link to one. You can also read my Making Internet Explorer Safer story. Hope this helps.



i'm getting the link for the story bobbi mentioned
