    Hey guys, anyone know of a good package that will keep the bad stuff off my kid's pc. Using windows xp.

    Thanks, looking for freeware.

    There is little that can be done before the fact, but after the fact, you can use Ad-Aware and Spybot Search and Destroy; both will be the first hits on Google with those terms.

    Define "bad stuff". Do you mean spyware? If so, Filburt's hit it on the head. If you mean porn sites, there is software out there, but it's far from foolproof. Only thing that is is you surfing with them.

    There'll be sites that slip through the filters, and trust me your kid will find them.

    Why bother?! Let him watch, there isn't anything abnormal, every kid goes to porn sites on the net. I remember before 4 or 5 years there wasn't any porn websites, so me and my friend were exchanging "pics" and "vids" with people in MS Chat hahaha...don't worry though the sites that have any porn pictures, videos etc. need credit cards, although there are very little who provide free adult material.

    There have been porn sites out there for longer than 5 years. Anyway, let's get back to PG land, mkay?
