I have a few windows 7 PC's that are not on a domain. I would like to set up content filtering on these machines based on per local account. Keep some local accounts from browsing at all, give some full access, and others filterd access. Is this possible to do through just Windows? Like setting up a local security policies?

If this sort of solution requires a 3rd party software, what is a good one to use that would allow me to control internet content based on Local Accounts?

You should be able to do this on each computer using: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts\Manage Accounts. Then select the Create New Account option...

If you create a 'Standard Account' type, then you can customise the permissions.

If you can't set up exactly what you need using this, then you may have to use specialised software.

I found  the free utility, WIndows Live Family Safety Filter. Works perfectly for this.
