    Block porn sites

    How can I block porn sites on my computer? I am asking so because I don't want my brother to go on that sites as I don't want to spoil him at all. So I want to block porn completely, I mean no pictures, videos, nothing. Is this possible? How?

    First of all get a good internet security suite which will fetch all kind of adware, spyware, virus and other malicious software on your computer. After that get CyberPatrol, NetDog Porn Filter and many more which you may find over the net and install on your computer. It will block almost all of the porn sites without the notice of the user.

    Get a Parental Control Software and block all the sites that are pornographic or something related. It will also protect you from online threats. According to me K9 Web Protection is the best free parental control and monitoring software.

    Also I think you should use Firefox web browser as it is considered as the safest browser available today. And its free to download.

    You can also block the sites if you know the name of those sites which your brother might visit by adding them to the block list of either the web browser or the router (if you are using). This will give him an error as soon as he enters those sites on the address bar. However this concept can not be guaranteed.

    From my experience, the more you try to block and ban sites the more inquisitive and determined the youngsters become.

    Curiosity about sex is surely a natural part of growing up? In today's computerised world with information at the touch of a key pad and mouse, would you not consider it strange if your brother did not attempt to view these sites as part of their growing up period?

    We, as the adult, should understand the feeling of them.
