"Very good web filter"

May 16, 2013  |  By JGarcia51

2013-05-16 23:36:11  |  By JGarcia51

 |  Version: HomeGuard 1.7.1

Pros

Very easy to use. Didn't slow down my Internet. This is keyword based so it doesn't need to query a database of blocked websites and I like that it can block only the pages with inappropriate content not the entire website..and you can add specific websites to a blocking or allow list.

Cons

Some false positives were blocked, but they can be easily added to the exception list in monitoring settings.

Summary

As with all downloads on this website CNET's installer will offer to install toolbars and other stuff...the original program's setup is, however, clean of any toolbars or adware.

 |  Version: HomeGuard 1.6.9

Pros

- Quick installation and no configuration needed.
- Very detailed monitoring logs.
- Completely hidden...it doesn't show in task manager or control panel..

Cons

Make sure you use the "Direct download" link below the download button to avoid CNET's installer which adds uneeded stuff...

"Good Parental Controls"

May 29, 2012  |  By Dave1564

 |  Version: HomeGuard Activity Monitor 1.6.4

Pros

Blocks all adult content automatically.
Too many monitoring features, probably more than the average parent needs.
Unnoticeable and doesn't affect computer speed.

Cons

no obvious cons for now.
