Child Control is a parental control tool for Windows that allows parents and tutors to keep an eye on what kids do on the PC. It offers an efficient solution with many settings for you to monitor and limit the time kids spend at the computer and control their access to the web.
An extensive array of settings and configuration options are available to let parents control just about everything the little members of the family are up to on the computer. Thus, it is possible to define the days and hours the PC and the Internet connection will be available; by default, the application is set to shutdown the PC when this time limit is reached, but you can change this behavior and have the application to log out, sleep, etc. Besides controlling time, it is possible to restrict the use of certain programs, define a list of blocked and allowed applications, block access to important Windows settings, and even hide any folder you choose. Similar options are available to monitor the Internet; you can easily block access to certain websites and add sites to the list of blocked/allowed ones.
Once all the configurations are set, the application will monitor PC activity and generate different logs with details like programs used, websites visited, the time spent on each one, etc. There is a remote control feature that lets you access the application from the web and modify any settings remotely. You can also set the program to send you reports of what has been happening via e-mail.
In short, Child Control offers parents and caregivers a comprehensive solution with dozens of settings to monitor kids activities at the computer and online, and protect them from security threats and undesired content. The application has a cost of 29.95 (single license) and can be evaluated for 30 days.
