    Hi all,

    I would need your help.

    My wife's dad has dementia and is also a PC enthusiast. Wife is worried that he can do something silly while surfing (banking etc) but don't want to take internet access away as it would be like killing him (and I agree).

    We then decided to keep the Internet access but to monitor/track/block. I was wondering if you could suggest a good internet tracking sw (not necessarily for free, happy to pay if there is nothing for free which does the same job).

    Ideally we would install as local admin, create guest account for her dad and configure some alerts and weekly email reports.

    Thanks all for your help in advance!

    PS: I have a MBP and he has a Win7 PC but I guess it doesn't matter much in these days as most sw is available for both platforms.

    Answering my own post. Found several products: K9, Norton Family, Safe Eyes, Net Nanny. I bought Net Nanny in the end.
