Next week I'm going over to set up a PC for the woman described above. She has very little experience with modern computing, and the first thing she told me after she asked me to set everything up was that she wanted something that would block "all of that dirty internet stuff".
I'm a 26 year old atheist with a sizable collection of dirty internet stuff, so my experience with internet filtering is basically zilch. Do any of you have any recommendations? I need something that is
- Low maintainence. She lives on the other end of town, so I can't rush over there if she has any issues.
- Preferably works with Opera. Her machine is an old Dell budgetbox without lot of RAM, so between Opera's lower footprint and speed dial (she'll only be using a few websites most of the time, so this way she can just click on them instead of typing a URL or going through a favorites menu) I think it'll be the best browser option.
- Is cheap or free.
I'll already have her machine locked down for viruses and spyware, so I just need something that'll keep her shielded from porn. Thanks for any input.
