This is a good piece of information but I can't possibly list every single unwanted site there thousands of them and I don't even know the names.

I need something that allowes me to say ALL porn sites blocked from ALL users.

Look at step 5 and 6. Those are option to block based on content, not just URL.

You could also use a service like OpenDNS, Untangle, or setup a Squid/Dansguardian box.

I will look into those when I get home tonight because my Parental Control window does not have show the options 5 & 6 at all. It only says block time and URL

I did a search for squid/dansguardian and got a lot of writtings on how to configure for a big network that need other things like clamav and there are a bunch of I guess DOS language also says that I need to have one of these Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris or SuSE in place and a web server.

Is there a simple way to install this and that will not require so many things and also where can I get it from?

Thank you

I just read somewhere else that Dansguardian does not run on Windows

I looked into the openDNS and it seems pretty good  just what I am looking for but I just want to make sure this is safe.

Or is my Network and all computers exposed to them to do whatever?

No they are not exposed, you are just using there servers for DNS resolution.
