    If you are just trying to limit what sites people can view and are using Internet Explorer you could use Content Advisor.

    Mac OS X (10.4).

    Now I hear some of you already shouting "HE WAS LOOKING FOR SOFTWARE YOU *******". Now, indeed he did, he never specified what his system hardware was, or the price, or what OS was involved. Mac OS X is also software, and comes with built in parental control that can accomplish exactly what is needed here. One can build an approved web-sites list, as well as ones that are blocked. Can stop certain programs from being run, and all kinds of rules that stop people from e-mailing certain people from Mail.app.

    Well your right that I did not state what OS nor hardware, though as valid as Mac OS X is I really don't think they want to go that way.

    Now for some basic info.

    Windows XP Home SP2
    Pentium 4 3Ghz
    1GB Ram
    80GB Seagate Hard drive
