I am CLUELESS on internet parental controls. I just want to make sure he doesn't get on any sites he shouldn't or see stuff he shouldn't. Would love just some free and simple download that can keep him from accessing adult sites... Does such a thing exist??? He also wants to use youtube but I am not sure about that... youtube is not exactly kid friendly- or is there a kid friendly youtube?Answer Question

This is how you enable the parental controls on Windows 7:
Ours are mostly focused on what he is allowed to download or install (NOTHING)
He has his own computer, but if he was on ours, we'd also use the program lockout that prevents him from using any games we don't want him playing
Make sure you have your computer set up before you worry about adding internet. No parental control filter is perfect, and it only takes clicking one deceptive banner ad to kill the whole machine.
