    Hi,

    Usually such information will be available in the History folder. With regards to porn, there are tonnes of such sites, and probably tonnes of new ones appearing everyday. There are programs available which do the job. Personally I've not used such software so I'm not in a position to recommend any. Perhaps our other members may have suggestions.

    Regards,
    Your friendly momok =)

    I`m the same as momok, I`ve never had any need to install software to protect children.

    However, the Netnanny software is supposed to be quite good from what I`ve heard.

    Regards Howard :)

    IE uses the settings from CP->Internet Options->Content Tab to
    filter this stuff, assuming the sites have volunteered to declare the content type.
    It actually works better than 60% of the time, but no filter will block 100%.
    Sadly, Firefox and other browsers do not reference these Internet Options.

    Then there's the keyword filtering provided in some routers; add keywords like
    pron, xxx (you make get false positives with this one), many of the 4-letter
    smut words (F*** BLO**** P***Y ...) and you will block another large percentage.
