Can anyone help. My teenage son constantly logs onto porn sites. I have tried searching for a site to download to restrict access but I have had no success.As a result we get loads of porn spam and pop ups. Does anyone know a good site or programme I can buy.

netnanny click here or cybersitter click here are just two commercially available programs, both have a trial version. but kids being kids they will probably get round it but as they are free trials then it might be worth a try

You could try using the hosts file. It will stop some sites being accessed click here This site's just closed down, but hgas left links to others. Download the file and read the info as there may be some sites you want to access, btu can't after installing the file. No problem to undo the damage though, search the file for tje site and then delete that line. It's easy to delete if they find out what's blocking them though.

If you password protect the boot up it'll stop them using the PC.

go to click here and get ad-aware

and

go to click here and get Spybot S&D
