I have decided to use Safe Eyes (Internet Security Filter) on my computer at home.

Now, I've discovered that it is very simple to bypass by resetting the winsock using netsh, terminating the process and renaming the process file.

Is there any way by program or script, to prevent this from happening without removing admin rights and if admin rights are removed will this prevent the issue?
