Arrow Censorship: A hypocritical approach.

Hello, all.

My little brother has Echolalia, (repeats everything he hears obsessively, and annoyingly) and has discovered several websites that, although when viewed from a mature angle are entertaining - his viewing of sites like Albino Blacksheep, Newgrounds, etc (not to mention an ill-educated repertoire of porno sites...) - has turned him into an embarrassing, stupid, vulgar, featherless parrot - and my will to use sites like youtube is exactly counterbalanced by my need to shut the little brat up.

My solution? Password protect Java, WMP, Flash, and any other plugin based system, as well as the ability to download files.

But, I don't really know how to do this - so I was hoping the vigilant community can help me out.


...and Happy Thanksgiving!

try downloading K9 web protection for free at http://www.k9webprotection.com/ you can block certain sites you want and you need a password to access them.

Hope that helps!

Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.

You can't pw protect java and such. The only thing you can do is block out the websites with the content you don't want him seeing. Try that program that troy suggested.
