Default Website and Ip blockers, home network

Does anyone know any web filtering tools I can get for blocking nonscence on my home network, you see I have several Computers in my household, each are all connected to a prestige routerm I was woundering if I can get a web filtering programme where I can block websites from my pc and it will block them through the network, I've tried using the router filter but its basic and crap and can only block a persific URL, I'm wanting to do this because I'm fed up of fixing my familys pc's because they are crap with security and my sister always accepts crap from the internet, and spyware manages to get through and can cause inffection to the network. I've heard of dans gaurdian, but I thought that was only if you have a server like what schools have.

Thanks for reading hope you can help.

I don't really have the money to spend out on a web filter right now, I just wanted one as a thing to boost my networks protection
