Blocking Inappropriate Web Sites

I am looking for a good program to monitor Internet sites specifically those that curious teen and pre-teen boys find themselves looking at when they think their parents are not around. We had downloaded the program provided by Earthlink but it caused nothing but problems. It caused my comouter to lock up. Ever since I removed it my system has run like a dream. Does anyone on this Exchange have a recommendation and/or experience with such programs? Thanks!

I've had good results with cybersitter. An advantage of cybersitter is that it's a one time registration, you don't have to renew a subscription every year like with other similar software.

I have a reason for not recommending Cybersitter, though there are other programs out there that you can try.

I would recommend using a hosts file to block those unwanted sites. Most unwanted sites are already blocked with this hosts file. You won't have any trouble at all.
