    Hector Protector Button/Screen Saver

    This Hector Protector™ button has been created by the NetSafe® Programme of New Zealand to help keep children safe online. The function of this button is to give a child the ability to quickly cover the screen of the computer with a screensaver of Hector Protector™ when they encounter material that frightens or upsets them. With a click of the button, the problem is covered over by Hector until a trusted adult can come and deal with the situation. Hector also gives children very positive feedback for using the button and talking with an adult about the problem.

    Seems a good idea on the face of it mul.....but I would have thought it would be better if it was called 'Hector Horse' and the parents 'Locked the Stable' door first.....It's a lot to ask for some inquisitive kid to be 'Fast on the Button'...

    Cochise, :cool:
