I've just put the kids' computer on the internet and want to install some sort of software to block inappropriate material. What are you using, or what's the best on the market today?

many thanks...

also if they start using a P2P program such as Kazaa, make sure you filter that too using options because I don't think that a normal parental control program would work with P2P programs

what age are the 'kids'?

If you have Symantec's Firewall, you can easily set it to restrict your children's XP login accounts to "child" which restricts access to sites you don't want them seeing (porn etc).
