    Besides having antivirus and antispam components the ZoneAlarm Security Suite has parental controls to block inappropriate content but ZoneAlarm Pro does not. You might want to check to see if you can get a special price from ZoneLabs on the upgrade to ZASS. If you do decide to go with ZASS make sure you follow the recommended instructions for completely uninstalling ZAP before you install ZASS. I also believe that some of the advanced consumer based routers (Netgear, Linksys, etc.) have subscription based parental controls to block inappropriate sites and/or their content. If you are running two or more computers then the router based solution for parental controls becomes more economical.

    Even still, its a battle that you can't win in the long run - If they are really determined, where there's a will there's a way!

    Even if you block access using ZASS, see my reply to another thread at http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/board/message?board.id=access&message.id=26769 to see just how easy it is to bypass any controls you might impose.
