Parental control software for PC

Hi,

A friend at work is after software that can block access to certain ( ) websites - so that her children can't inadvertently access filth on the net.

Can anyone recommend any software that's up to the job?

thanks in advance

I use CyberPatrol which seems to do a good enough job for my kids. It needs a little setting up as it can block the most innocent of sites on the default settings.

Obviously I don't know if you this is relevant for you but on my Netgear router I can also block websites with different words in the URLs.
