i actually happen to be a teenager, and i used to look at bad stuff. i haven't for a quite a while and know the dangers of doing these kind of things. for some reason parents seem to think that all these security filters work... well, they don't. there is this nifty site called google, i'm sure you've heard of it. it allows you to search anything, including porn (well duh). history is not as accurate as you would think, considering you can simply open it up, and delete any cookies you didn't want anyone else to see. we used to have Norton on our home computer here, and it did a descent job, but there will always be random sites that aren't marked or whatever. anyway, if you dig deep enough into the search engines, you can find a link that's not blocked that'll give you a look at crap you shouldn't be lookin' at. this was a while back, like 2 years or so, so i'm not sure how good the newer programs are, but i think there's still loop holes and crap in them too. windows happens to have this thing, like offline browsing, and it'll keep info on pages you've visited and even without being connected to the net you can view the pages. even if some one has deleted the cookies, the sites should still be listed in the computer in a temporary file, you can use the search feature in windows to look up key words (ie. nudity, nude, sex, porn, naked, etc.), if someone's been looking up crap, it should pull up the temp. files on it, or whatever and you can tell they've been looking at bad stuff. of course you should hope most kids won't read this or they'll start doing it and deleting those files too, but anyway. it's safest to have a good long talk with your child. intall some net security software, monitoring software or whatever. make sure to be around them when they're using the net. try keeping the comp in a family area if the problems don't stop. or if it's that huge of an addiction to your child, take the computer out completely. whatever, i hope some of this happened, now that i think about it, it probably didn't do much. but whatever, this is a huge problem, and if you're a lazy ass parent and don't talk with your child or take an active role in monitoring what they're doing, and you just slap on a net security and think it's all good now, you're just stupid. oh... don't be a ****** about it either, your child will just hate you more and actively try to do the wrong thing. good luck!
