Can zonealarm be used to disable MSN
My son needs the net in his room for school work, but he keeps going onto msn and I obviously can't supervise him 24/7. He is good with computers and can get around any simple measures like just uninstalling it. Can zonealarm be configured to block him from going on msn? It would need to be something he can't easily change, either- perhaps putting a password on zonealarm could help me with that?
Any help would be most appreciated.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

Hi!have you tried to use the Parental controls in ZA Suite? (http://www.zonealarm.com/blog/index....rental-control)Check the categories and tick on the one you don't want him to use/access.You can then set a password... once set, remember to log-out!This works well, however if he is running on a adminitrator account he can remove ZA or corrupt it.So, to avoid this you should set your son account as 'limited'. Limited accounts in XP may not work very well, test it before. Works fine in VISTA.Hope this helpsCheers,Fax
