A really basic and free way is to use the Naomi web filter. By "basic", I
mean that Naomi is not being developed further and it is not configurable
as you will see if you read the information on its website. It's still a
very good product, though. Basically if the searcher puts in a naughty word
or goes to a website with naughty words, the browser will simply shut down.
It works with IE and Firefox. http://www.radiance.m6.net/
After Naomi is installed it will ask you to choose a password for
administrative access. You will need to enter this password to turn Naomi
off and also to uninstall it. DO NOT LOSE THIS PASSWORD. There is no
backdoor if you do.
My tech colleague and I use Naomi in his elementary school's laptop program
and for cllients who request a simple web filter. It works well with the
restrictions I mentioned.
