Windows 7: How to get Web Filtering for my Version of Windows 7

How to get Web Filtering for my Version of Windows 7

Hi,

I recently bought a new Dell laptop. I went to add a new standard user (for my kids) and set set up parental controls. To my surprise, this version did not come with web filtering. I went to the Help, and asked "What happened to Parental COntrols Web Filtering and Activity Report?". The response is:

"The Parental Controls web filter and activity reporting program isn't included in this version of Windows. To enable web filtering and activity reporting, you'll need another program from Microsoft or another company."

I would be very grateful if someone could tell me how I can install the web filtering and activity reporting capability on this new laptop just as I do on my other Windows 7 and VIsta machines.

Thanks for any response!

Tim

Hi THC, the best I can think of is OpenDNS. Once you create an account (free) enter the details in your router, then download and install OpenDNS Updater on all computers.
