    I second the hosts file. Is netnany free?

    A hosts file manager can be found @: http://www.bluetack.co.uk/modules.ph...howpage&pid=10

    if you are not keen on editing it your self.

    I've edited the HOSTS file several times before, does it save after a reboot?

    Yes, as long as there is no security app like Deepfreeze it should be fine. Another option is set IE up to block adult Orianted content. Or you could use a third party app like Netnanny or a firewall like ZA and set them you block adult content.

    Do you have a router? If you do you can tell it to block out ips and certain IP ranges.

    Otherwise teach him to overclock, show him the OC forums. He won't want to go anywhere else... I'm addicted to this place, pr0n's got nothing on milking the last few mhz out of a component. A 5ghz P4 now that's hot..... Literally
