Please can anyone give me advice on the best way to control Internet access for my seven year old [?]

At the moment we run Windows 98 and I am just using the supplied Content Adviser in Internet Explore version 6. I have only got it monitoring against RSACi, but nearly every site she visits doesn't register as having a rating, even this one, which Dave says he's done for RSACi. This means either I haven't got it set up right, or it's rubbish. [:(]

Instead we have to rely on building up a list of approved web-sites, which means that I have to enter the password for each new suitable site Rebecca finds so they get added to the list. This can be very irritating for both of us, especially if I'm doing something else and she's just navigating around suitable sites. [B)]

Does anyone recommend any software I can buy which would do a better job than Content Adviser [?]

Thanks.

I use CyberPatrol at home and have found it very good. It was reviewed in a magazine that my wife gets, (she is Chair of Governors at my 7 year old daughter's school), and it got a very good review.

It's easy to set up, you can restrict the times when they can log on, how long they can surf for per day/week etc. as well as limiting the sites thet can access. There is an "Admin Overide" facility as well.

BTW - If you have specific user-ids for each family member you can tailor the settings to suit each user.

Thanks folks. I had a quick look at Net Nanny. The Quick Start guide is 16 pages and the user manual is 64 pages! I'll give one of then a trial and see how we get on.
