My sister's PC was gifted to her with pre-installed Windows XP. She thinks it has become infected, and she has very limited funding, so I said either buy a copy of Windows XP or Win 7, though I'm not convinced the system can take Win 7 and Win XP is being phased out. Therefore, I would recommend Ubuntu, and 10.04 is around the corner. She has a 10 year old son who is getting more interested in web sites. What options for web filtering exist and are easy to use and manage to protect her son, my nephew, from accessing improper sites? She lives far enough away that her husband and she would have to do most all the management and neither is technically adept - something comes up, they either throw out the PC or call me. Thanks for any insight/help. I just can't think of any easy answer to Linux web content/page/url filtering/management. Maybe one of your answers will be something I simply lost track of... Scott
