Browser website filtering software


My 4 year-old daughter is starting to use the PC. She starts to know how to type in the url. Before I Google around, do you recommend any software that will allow me to filter the website. I was thinking something like permit/deny type of filtering. She has her own PC and I want to allow only a couple of websites. Thanks

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are a number of programs and services available. I have had good luck with SafeEyes.  It's a hosted system that all web requests get filtered through.  The yearly cost is reasonable; it has a good amount of flexibility and you can get reports emailed to you... probably not a concern at age 4 :)

You can use open DNS  to block websites it free.
Once you create an account you should be able to configure.I haven't triesd it before. 
If the list of websites is short you could remove the DNS servers from her network connection and only add the websites you want her to access to the hosts file in c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts . You open the file with notepad and it has instructions on how to use it inside (you just add a line for every website stating the web address and the ip address).
