Issue: Parental control software installed on Windows 7 is being bypassed by installing Linux as a second partition.


Other Details: Currently, I can prevent Ubuntu or other Linux based application on CD (ISO.) from being installed by password protecting BIOS. However, this method doesn't prevent WUBI.exe or MINT4WIN.exe from execution.


Goal: Purchase or build a system that will prevent the issue stated above from occurring.


Possible Solutions:



  • Purchase or build a system on a motherboard with UEFI.
  • Go MAC


At this point, I'm not sure if these solutions I have in mind will solve my issue. I have no experience with them. I would like to hear your take on them or suggests other alternatives.


Thanks,

You can setup parental controls in your router or use OpenDNS as more effective means to control internet activities: http://www.opendns.com/

A new PC will have all the same issues.

If a kid is smart enough to bypass parental control by installing linux or whatnot, that kid is gonna find a way to bypass whatever you throw at him. Proxy servers, dvds from buddies, and so on. When there is an end to piracy, there is an end to kids bypassing parental control...
