    I know there are blacklists and hosts files, but thats besides the point and not a at question here. I usually install MVPS host file and setup OpenDNS n all the machines I work on, but some people still go into bad sites that aren't blocked because they don't know they are bad.

    Anyways, must be free software and work in Vista. What do you think of Crawler's Web Security Guard? Others not so in favor are Finjan, LinkScanner Lite or Siteadvisor because they are for search only. Ideas, discussion?

    Honestly I would put a sandbox type program in their computers but they would not know how to use them.

    K9 Web Protection looks excellent lucas1985, I will try to install it in my virtual machine and try it out. Maybe it isn't as hard to configure as I see it. :D
