Go into Internet Explorer. Go to tools select internet options. Go to content. On content advisor click enable, it will ask for a password, make one up. Now click on settings and set what level of access u wish your son to have.
That's it, if u need any more help don't hesitiate. Hope that answers your question

I can think of several ways, none of which involve changes to your computer....

There are sharewares that disable the ctrl-alt-del. You could install one of those. But there are also sharewares that allow to end tasks... Gosh. What can be done?
There is a program that monitors activity on the pc. Maybe if you change your plans and instead of forbidding your son to visit these sites, he must wash dishes, cut grass or anything each time he access such a site. You can monitor his visits with a programm called SAM. Check at:

You could move to Singapore, where it's still legal to smack the brat with a bamboo stick.

Try Cyber Patrol or Net Nanny.

http://www.cyberpatrol.com/dyn_hm.htm

I believe Cyber Patrol disables using ctrl+alt+delete because it requires a password to be shutdown.


http://www.netnanny.com/Products/PCNIntro.asp

I believe netnanny will do the same, but no trial is availble. Try using cyber-patrol, it's very effectives. I believe it also tracks what sites have been attempted to be viewed. It works by having you select key words that cannot be viewed. Or, track what sites your son goes to, then look at the history and disable those sites

(So if he has to look up some report about body health, any sites with 'sex' won't be blocked)

Oh, I forgot to add, I believe prodigy comes with a free version of Cyber Patrol. Maybe you can order a cd from them to get a copy if you like it?...

By the way.  Absolutely NONE of these CyberPatrol, NetNanny, etc. programs are foolproof under Windows 9X.  ANY program can be killed using one of the many utilities available for showing and killing processes on Windows.

Win9x has NO SECURITY WHATSOEVER against any user killing a process.

The only way such a program can be protected is when it's running under an operating system that has security.  That would be Windows NT, Windows 2000, Linux, or similar.

Perhapse you should concider a different kind of protection, perhapse not running on your computer.  Eg.  go through a proxy server which disallows that material. Doubt it would be very cost effective though ...


What is wrong with that stuff anyway, tis a learning experience !

rickyjune, not being funny but if u had said what browser you used I wouldn't have suggested what I did, in future, pl give all information pertaining to the question......radical idea, let your son c whatever, he can't get access to seriously perverted **** as he doesn't have a credit card. Live and let live, let him c whatever, ask if he has questions, help him understand......I know this isn't my child, but I did this and they are all at university so I couldn't have done that bad a job.

No internet patrol software is fool proof on windows, but try what you can, (Give cyber patrol a try) and if your son is determined enough to find some program that will crash it for him (Cyber patrol was *made* to be against that, it's developed for buisnesses, and schools as well) then perhaps you should have a talk with him as others have suggested/

I think that your choice of internet protection shouldn't be a program but more along the lines of losing computer privelages for a nice long time, but... you won't go wrong purchasing Odisoft's Appstraka to keep your boy from anything you want on that machine...and he cannot ctrl-alt-del it closed. The program is a mere thirty dollars to register and is money well spent if you have "curious" children. You can find this program at http://appstraka.hypermart.net.
