    "Every parent should have to build good computer habits"

    January 31, 2009  |   By hennikr

    Version: K9 Web Protection 3.2.36

    Pros

    The ability to set hours of internet access was the unique feature that put this over the top. Other niceties: add website url's to block or allow access too; several categories of blocking. Our teenager no longer IM's until 2-3am !

    Cons

    its been a bit slow when you review internet activity; but its very easy to setup and clear history. The 'security level' category will block a few websites unintentionally - so you'll have to add those into the url exceptions (its slick!)

    Summary

    Every parent should have this on their computer to build good habits, prevent endless surfing and Instant messaging past bedtimes, prevent too much curiousity, and keep your young ones from accidently stumbing upon inappropriate sites. This program has taken the worry and need to monitor over the shoulder out of our lives!

    "Caution! - Can Kill Windows Boot"

    January 31, 2009  |   By louis_mallow

    Version: K9 Web Protection 3.2.36

    Pros

    Good reviews, so it's evidently powerful if you can use it (I couldn't).

    Cons

    After installation Windows wouldn't start normally. In safe mode he programme wouldn't accept my admin password for uninstall, nor email me a temporary one.

    Summary

    Be cautious, and download Revo Uninstaller from elsewhere here before trying this product. If it kills Windows, restart in safe mode and use Revo to uninstall it.

    "Does what it says"

    January 27, 2009  |   By Cissy1963

    Version: K9 Web Protection 3.2.36

    Pros

    It is pretty thorough on keywords

    Cons

    The password was easily accessed. There has to be a more full proof way to protect it.

    Summary

    Once my nephew got the pass word, he changed everything and had himself a porn party.

    "READ THIS, USEFUL: works fine, BUT:"

    January 19, 2009  |   By meneldor

    Version: K9 Web Protection 3.2.36

    Pros

    very effective, quick-learning program, reliable, can block build-in features, can only be deleted with your password, able to block connections or limit them. Keeps data, can display them to you any time.

    Cons

    if you set a password, you often cannot modify it, even tho it tells you that you had succeed. That's all the cons so far.

    Summary

    Very useful program, just don't forget íour password, because you're in deep sh..t then. Gonna use it from now on, i strongly recommend this for families and companies as well!

    "Spyware???"

    December 8, 2008  |   By caingurl-1

    Version: K9 Web Protection 3.2.36

    Pros

    Great piece of software for kid's protection.

    Cons

    I don't like this product for the fact that it is an online application that can track your browsing habits, which in itself is some type of spyware, even if they do nothing with the information.

    Summary

    Make sure that you read their terms of use and their privacy policy in great detail, then decide if this online application is worth the risk.

    "DO NOT INSTALL THIS PROGRAM, it kills your PC"

    December 8, 2008  |   By guardianis

    Version: K9 Web Protection 3.2.36

    Pros

    none that I could see because it never ran properly

    Cons

    It prevented IE to run, could not uninstall, could not turn off in services, could not open IE properties to disable, could not open system properties to do a restore.

    Summary

    Stay away from this progam!! It prevented IE to run, could not uninstall, could not turn off in services, could not open IE properties to disable, could not open system properties to do a restore. I've spent over an hour now trying to figure out a work around and it seems like my PC is trashed. I deal with cleaning viruses and such all day and yet I can't get this off. They should consider a switch on careers and become a virus producer.

    "My husband and I love it and can't believe it was free!"

    November 20, 2008  |   By thetrombleys

    Version: K9 Web Protection 3.2.36

    Pros

    There are many categories of protection to choose from. You can decides in detail what you will allow and what you won?t allow.

    Cons

    Sometimes when we forget to shut it off of turn off some controls it?s hard to search the internet because K9 comes up and tells me the page is blocked. Luckily all you need to do in sign into K9 and uncheck the category it is blocking.

    Summary

    This product has been a life saver. It puts my mind at ease knowing my husband and I won?t see things we don?t want to see and that our children are safe with this protection. I recommend this for anyone!
