    Default Parental control software

    The thread is about setting up parental control software on the home PC that I use also during home classes. I am not able to accompany my kids all the time while he's using the computer, that's why I would like to ask you what parental control software is the best, it has to be easy to use and working on windows 7 system.

    Thanks in advance !

    For Parental Control, we use Covenant Eyes. We get a report that shows us any web sites that have been visited.
    In the past I have also just used the parental control that comes with Windows. It allows me to block certain web sites and limit the time they can use the computer. For example, for some time I was working a part-time. So I would block any internet access during the time I was not home and from 10pm to 8am.

    Thanks for the reply Janet! We don't use parental control software at all (my daughter is extremely "legalistic" and tells on herself even when there is no need!). I didn't even know that software came with Windows, might check it out just in case.

    I know that's an old topic but I've got the same problem so I decided to search someting on this forum... I work as a hairdresser and I don't have time to sit with my daughter all day so it's impossible to control what she's doing behind the computer screen... I also block any internet access when I'm away from home but I'm using the PCWebControl (you can read more about it onhttp://www.pcwebcontrol.com ) and for me it's the best Parental Control program for Windows operating systems. What's the best- by using it you can get reports of your kids activity in internet and you can make black list with pages that you don't like him to see... For me it's a must to use parental control cause as a parents we have to protect them from the dark side of the Internet...
