Looking for nice thir-party parental control software

Like in the title. I know that there are some parental setting biult-in, but I want to install some 3rd party soft on my win 7. I know that there are plenty of programs like that, but I don't know which is reliable and worth its price. I would be gratefull for any suggestions or opinions regarding this topic.

Hi there!

That depends on what exactly you are trying to do, is it to control which programs can be run, or is it more of an issue for preventing access to certain websites? If the issue is websites, one of the best options in my opinion is to use OpenDNS, which is free and relatively easy to setup, the walkthrough is very simple and I would be happy to help. This will allow you to automatically block pornographic websites, gambling websites, etc. You can get information about it here:
Home Parental Controls | OpenDNS
The free version is excellent, there is no reason for a paid version unless you need uncommon features.

As for 3rd party applications, I have found Qustodio to be quite useful and easy to work with, you can find it here: Best Parental Control Software - It has a free and premium program, the free program was more than enough for me

Norton Online Family is also quite useful and likewise has a free and paid version here: - It is one of the very, very few Norton programs I am okay with!

I can't see a parental control software there. Only keyloggers, or I am blind.

Forethinker gives a combined method for best results. Only reading material.
