What's new in this version:
Version 9.8 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
Some sites couldn't block even when you set this sites on you personal blocking list, especially https sites. On the other site some harmful sites are blocked, for example some shopping sites are in category "models". But the worst is the support, they not answer E-Mails when you have questions. The support is really bad!!
I'am not recommended this program. The K9 filter program has similar features and the quality of filtering is nearly the same. The difference is, that K9 are free and Optenet pc cost 39,95$. Of course, Optenet pc is more difficult to override, but the fee of 39,95 $ are non adequate to the support and quality. For 20$ it would be a good filter program, but not for nearly 40$.
Easy to download, install and select domains that are potentially harmful
Does not work with Google Chrome
You would be foolish to rely upon Optenet PC. When you initially select the domains that you wish to be protected from you will see that Google Chrome is listed by default as a browser that is barred. I was perplexed at the time and, as Chrome was my preferred browser, deselected it. There is a very good reason why Google Chrome is selected by default and that is that Optenet PC works infrequently with this browser. I discovered this by accident when I found that domains that I had selected were still accessible. Naturally I contacted Optenet and they acknowledged that there was a problem with the software working with Google Chrome. Their advice was to use a different browser!! The said that they were working on a 'fix'. Now 3 months down the line there is still no fix and Optenet PC cannot be relied upon as a firewall. I certainly would not have purchased the software had I known that it was ineffective with Google Chrome and there is no warning from Optenet that this is the case. To add insult to injury the only response I have received to my emails of late is the automated acknowledgement of my email. My advice is to steer clear of this product.

It works with no problems. Easy install, set it up and forget.
One of my kids complained that something he wanted to look at was blocked. But I was able to report it easily and give him access.
I am so relieved that porn and other bad websites are blocked from our computers.I tried 4 programs before finding Optenet PC. One I could not get installed. One crashed my computer and one was too complicated to set up.
While we are very sorry that this user ran into problems, the comments are highly inaccurate. 1. Users can use Optenet for FREE for a 2 week trial period before deciding if they wish to purchase. The filter can be configured to block Internet access in the case that a computer user tries to access FORBIDDEN content (pornography, gambling, etc) repeatedly. A web filter should provide these safety measures as options. When the trial period ends, the user will see a message warning him that his Internet access is no longer filtered and giving him the option to continue browsing without filtering or to uninstall or to purchase. Our mission is to help individuals and families to create a safe and healthy Internet environment with Optenet PC. We provide a high level of free technical support and enjoy customer satisfaction throughout the world and the web filter has been ranked as one of the most accurate and easy to use products available.
Took me 2 minutes to install and I am not technical. After my kids saw pornography I was desperate to block those sites and not have to limit the kids using the Internet. So far so good with Optenet PC. Tech support answers email right away too.
So far so good.
Important tool for parents and keeps kids safer when they are on the Internet.
