Hello,
I wonder if someone could explain to me how to block someone from using my
computer to access pornographic websites? I went to Tools, Internet
Options, etc. and set it to Level 1, but this made it so that EVERY site you
try to go to, you need to use a password. I just want to have them locked
out of the porn sites, not the entire internet. I know that you can write in
the sites that you disapprove of, but I don't know what they are, and I'm
sure there must be so many urls, that would be unreasonable to do.
What's more of a problem is, I wish there was a way to do it, so that they
do not catch on that I know they've been doing this. I really don't think
they must know about the History button.
You're probably thinking I should just lock them out of the computer
altogether, but I don't wish to prevent them from using the computer
completely, and as I said, I do not want them to know I know.
I would like to be able to set this up ASAP, as they are returning later
this evening or tomorrow.
I would appreciate any help very much, as I have been trying to look for
information myself, but couldn't find any other than what I explained.

You most likely need a 3rd party application to fill your needs:

San;
You could try Content Advisor:

Content advisor is limited in its capabilities but it may help.
Since it depends on the webmasters voluntarily labeling their sites,
many offensive sites may not be blocked,

There are some programs that are for just such a purpose (blocking
adult sites). I don't know how well any of them work or which one to
recommend. Do a Google search on the Internet and see what comes up.

& just because one program might cost twice as much as the other, it
doesn't mean it is any better, it might be worse. (You are talking to
a guy who runs a lot of freeware, though not all...) ;-)

Also, you should consider setting up separate accounts on your
computer. You'll have yours, and your kids will have theirs (share
one or create even another account).
