    After reading an article in a recent issue of Popular Mechanics I applied the suggestions on changing the DNS addresses accessed by my router.
    This can be used by either the Mac or Windows platform and I am pleased with the results.
    I opened an account at <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.opendns.com/">http://www.opendns.com/</a><!-- m --> at no cost and I now can see many details on the sites being contacted on a daily basis. One can block sites and use other tools offered by OpenDNS.

    It looks like it does a lot more than just the DNS part, that it includes Parental Controls, Phisching controls and more!

    I have a box now that does my filtering and such, but I'm going to check this out.

    Thanks!

    I have been using it for over two years now and I find it most useful. When I set the filtering to "Moderate", it blocks out all offending material.
