    Default Parental control over the computer

    Hi all,
    My son has got 2 years and he's really fascinated by the computers. I don't want to forbid him using the computer but I want him to be totally secured. That's why I was thinking about some parental control software that will block all undesired content... Are you using such a software? Which one would you prefer?

    Thanks a lot for any advice!

    My 2yo can turn on the pc, log on, go to favs and play her games. The parental lock stops her clicking on the ads etc. But...I also have four older kids who have taught her and also need the parental lock.

    We have a mac. The kids have their own account, which we have the password to. It automatically logs them off after 30mins (with warnings). We have to put an admin password in to approve any website they want to visit. Our eldest is 6, so presently they can only access reading eggs and the sesame st websites!

    That depends on which system you operate. Overall, NetNanny is imho the best, mostly because you can use it on windows, mac or linux. It is kinda expensive though, so my second pick would be PCWebControl http://www.pcwebcontrol.com/ or WebWatcher.
