Default Internet controls...

I bought my almost 12 yr old daughter a new computer that is, of course, internet-ready. So, what program(s) can you IT masters recommend for me that will keep her from the bad stuff and also keep th epervs away. For normal security, firewalls and spyware killing, I've been using Trend Micro's product and it works great. I don;t kinow if they offer the "protection" piece. Thanks in advance...

Sorry I can't help you in regards to your daughter being shielded from the bad things on the net, but I would highly recommend you purchase one of these........ http://www.alphashield.com/ IMO this is the BEST firewall protection you can buy!

Look at NetNanny. (www.netnanny.com)

Are you on AOL? A lot of people pan AOL, but you can't beat it for their parental controls.

The best internet control is having the computer in a place where a parent can frequently look over the shoulder of the child. Not in the child's bedroom, but someplace where there's lots of parental traffic like a den or kitchen.
