  4. 4. Rule 2 <ul><li>Ensure you have anti-virus software installed </li></ul><ul><li>There are hundreds out there the easiest to use, install and is free is AVG </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t forget to perform daily updates and weekly scans for viruses </li></ul>
  5. 5. Rule 3 <ul><li>Ensure you have internet security installed </li></ul><ul><li>There are hundreds out there some come just as the interne security but most come in a packages with antivirus software e.g. AVG mentioned on the previous slide. </li></ul>

Rule 6 <ul><li>Nothings better than physically observing the child </li></ul><ul><li>If they know the parent is there and watching them 99% of the time they will not attempt to go to any websites they shouldn’t plus if the parent is there then they can also help them if problems arise. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Rule 7 <ul><li>Set rules and limits to the children’s internet use </li></ul><ul><li>This can be limits to internet use, time frames when they are allowed to use it. Ideally when the parent is available </li></ul>

Rule 8 <ul><li>Pop-ups </li></ul><ul><li>These are unwanted advertisements which may distract the young user to another website with seedy marketing gimmicks, they may even contain explicit content. </li></ul><ul><li>To prevent against these ensure internet explorer has pop-up blocker turned on, it should look like the image below. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Rule 9 <ul><li>Ask what websites your child is going to go on </li></ul><ul><li>With software like “Spector Pro” you can log to see if they have been truthful and are going onto suitable websites and typing suitable text </li></ul>
