Internet monitoring on home computers

Is there a shareware/freeware program that will monitor internet usage similar to the RAS on NT or Cybersitter, Netnanny, etc.  We have parents who want to control time and content on their home pcs.  They want to have logons for each child to control the time spent...etc.  Thanks

If the parents are using an AOL account, they can set up one for the kids with limited access to chat rooms, web sites, etc.  Other than that, filtering software like the titles you mentioned are they way to go.  Another option would be to sign up with an online service/ISP that handles that stuff on it's own.  Places like intergrityonline.com (a christian ISP) try to block obscene and "inappropriate" content, though it does so with a decidedly religous slant.
My favorite way to address this issue: parental supervision.
Download a shareware version of Cybersitter at:

If it is good it would be worth buying, you can download it and pay by credit card.

This question was awarded, but never cleared due to the JSP-500 errors of that time.  It was "stuck" against userID -1 versus the intended expert whom you awarded.  This corrects the problem and the expert will now receive these points; points verified.
