I haven't gotten around to testing it myself yet, but the free program Naomi was recommended in these forums last month and received a good review. You can check out the post by clicking here.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for this I have installed and it looks and feels just what I want , something unobtrusive which works without wrecking your PC .
Looks to me that this one proves what some of us know , the free offerings usually are the best .
I have today tried two others which are not free and both were an absolute nightmare in terms of installation difficulting and getting to actually work.
once again thanks

Parental control is the best option to provide a safe online environment to our kids. The best email service is It has many facilities like it allow child to only receive email from those in their contact list, email a copy of incoming messages to the parent and most important thing is that it has a simple mode for young children as well as an advance mode for slightly older kids.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
