Suggestions on sites to block ADULT content

Hi friends...I have friend visiting with a young son. Caught the little bugger online on some sites that he should have NOT been viewing (lets leave it at that)...he was using my desktop as they did not travel with their own. I didn't want to rat him out and ruin their vacation so I thought I would install a block on my computer. Trouble is...I have no clue. Are there some free downloads or cheap programs that prohibit a user from going onto a particular sight? Any suggestions are appreciated...thanks!

Maybe a firewall?

Re: Suggestions on sites to block ADULT content

it is far easier to just turn on your parental controls on firefox and do a white list. a list of sites he can visit.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

Re: Suggestions on sites to block ADULT content

alternatively, you can make a new user account for him in Windows (if that is what you are using) and turn on parental controls and customize them to your liking. Password the other accounts.

Anyway... awkward

When you do set up filters he'll know you know. I assume you didn't walk in on him

Your other option is to let it go and let his parents deal with it.

Blowing out someone else's candle does not make yours shine brighter.

Don't let the kid browse your favourites, simples.

A bit of cock and boob won't harm anyone

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
