    hi, i am trying to get a password put on my PC for accessing the internet, as my little brothers would to like to use my PC for making stuff and playing games etc...(the usual stuff kids do on the computer) but i do not want them to have access to the internet as they will be straight on to nude pictures of woman,:eek:
    could you let me know if it is possible to get a password on the internet, and how to do it.

    You can get free content filters from download.com or you can buy one from any computer shop.

    She is looking for a solution that allows regular use of the internet, but disallows malicious usage.
