I have an older PC I am giving to my kids for games because they keep semi-trashing my laptop. This brings up the obvious problems of browsing sites that are too adult, viruses, etc. How do you handle this?

I'm on the Advisory Council for a product from Symantec/Norton called OnlineFamily.Norton (www.onlinefamily.norton.com). It really is very good. It's free for the rest of this year, too. What I like most (as I have 4 kids) is that it's flexible. We can set appropriate rules and limits (can even track/limit how much time each child gets on computer) for each child. Definitely worth a good look. Tim
