    I`ve been asked if I know of any decent content filtering software for a
    kids' PC - any suggestions ?

    Cost probably won't be an issue, but free is always nice :p

    Personally, I think it'd be better in a public area so you could see what
    they're up to, but I don't think that's an option.

    I use Net Nanny. Seems to work OK and can email you a report daily/weekly of
    any activity that it has blocked. Their technical support always responds
    within 24 hours.
    You can custom-configure settings such as how many times a rude work has to
    appear on a page before NN will block the site. You can also submit sites to
    NN support that don't appear on the friendly list.

    Downside is that even though you can create user accounts in Net Nanny and
    assign different settings for each user, the program doesn't interact with
    the Windows accounts. This results in Net Nanny using the account "Anyone"
    on startup. You have to right-click on the NN icon, choose logout and then
    choose login to choose the user account.
