None. Worst program EVER.
Completely blocks your internet. COMPLETELY.
I didn't have an account for cnet before I downloaded this program, but since my experience, I just had to create an account to warn people about this absolutely horrendous program. I downloaded k9 to stop myself from watching porn. I set a random password, so that I wouldn't be tempted. Little did I know, my nightmare was about to begin.I'm a freak because I wanted to stop myself from wasting my time watching inappropriate things? Bottom line is that this program caused way more problems than it should have.
I went on with my browsing, feeling good, knowing that I wouldn't be able to watch porn. The only problem was... I couldn't do a damn thing on the internet! Each time I tried to connect to a website, it always showed me the K9 protection error page. At first, I thought it might just have been my connection, after all, these things do happen. Nope. My entire family's internet connections were fine! I thought, "Hmm, that's odd." So I tried plugging in an ethernet cable to see if my internet would work again. Wrong again. I soon came to the conclusion that I would have to get rid of this program to access the internet again!
The only problem, was that this program is damn near impossible to uninstall! And get this, if you did what I did, and set a random password, you will NEVER be able to uninstall this program. A password is required to uninstall this program, and if you click "Forgot password", NOTHING HAPPENS, because you need to have an internet connection to have a password sent to your e-mail! This wouldn't be a problem, if this program didn't block your internet completely!
The only way I got rid of this program was to do a bunch of extremely tedious things that didn't uninstall the program, but disabled it completely. After doing this, what do you know? My internet was working perfectly again!
Sorry for the long rant, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS PROGRAM. Save yourself the trouble and hours of time removing this. I've learned my lesson. I would give this program negative a million stars if I could.
