I've got XP Home and have the admin account set up for me and a limited
account for my son. I've been trying to change the settings so his account
cannot access objectionable websites and keep my account at the normal
settings. Every time I turn on the content advisor, it keeps the restricted
settings for both accounts and not just my son's. Is there any way to
restrict just his account from accessing sites he shouldn't be at? Thanks!

If you have your own Broadband connection already (i.e.don't need AOL,
Earthlink, etc.), there are several really good parental control software
comparative reviews:
From this past August: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1621258,00.asp
Cybersitter was the Editor's choice and I know of several schools running
this software package.

Beyond filtering software and parental control for entire desktop experience
and limiting computer access time, try this software:

Personally? Good parenting is good parenting.
Hang out and be with your kid while they are on the Net.
Teach them about the Net's danger.

....And hope your parenting has been effective.

There is a new site that gives the same search results as Google, but
removes adult content from the search list.

http://www.GoogleSafe.com

It works very well. I use it myself to find things without having to
sift through a lot of porn and sites I'd rather not have to be bothered
with when I do a search.

It makes website searching safe for kids. I have it set as my default
home search page instead of Google.
