Parental Control

A friend has asked about adding parental control to their laptop. How do i go about this?

Are there standard windows functions which can do this?

how does it work - does it block sites with certain words in it for example!?

These controls are good for the youngsters but most can easily be beaten by the average teenager.

Teenage boys get their machines infected on pornsites and teenage girls from ringtone sites and chat rooms.
I spend alot of time cleaning PCs.

The best course for the teenagers is a talk about common sense browsing, a little bit of trust and good antivirus and antimalware programs kept up to date.
