....am getting along fine now with CyberPatrol, ...
I trialled several "web filtering programs" ....very unimpressed !
They all failed to work, and blocked ALL web access. (made restore point/s
prior to installing / uninstalling etc.)
.....then I tried CyberPatrol (which also block all internet access the 1st
time I tried it), ...was gettiing fed up with installing / uninstalling
....dropping XP Home ed. SP3+ back to that restore point prior to installing
etc. ...then I though I'd try CyberPatrol again ...now working VERY well,
.....very impressed, especially how it matches user profile name to "its' "
profiles when switching profiles i.e. it selects its' matching XP profile
with differrent web access level etc !!
....this is on new build PC for very young niece,
....any one in here using CyberPatrol, (I've already gone on and paid for a 1
year license), but, would still be interested in other views on
