Letting your children use the Internet for personal and school use is a common practice. There is a world's worth of information available for research online. Unfortunately, there is also adult-only appropriate content on the Internet as well. To help keep your children from viewing inappropriate sex sites, Internet Explorer has a content filter that you can use to block sites. By activating the content filter, you can limit your child's browsing activities to children appropriate web content.
