What is the best free parental control program?

I have a 2 boys ages 13 and 14 that lost internet oriviliges last year for looking at porn in the wee hours of the morning. I (at least) thought I had stuff like that blocked but somehow they got by it.

  • Most of the big browsers have decent ones. I've used MSN's, they give email reports of activity and allow blocking of sites in a sensible way. You MUST be an admin on their computer to have any real control. That is key. Otherwise they can circumvent anything you set up. It will also allow you to have the computer automatically shut down during sleeping hours. GL
