ADVANCED PARENTAL CONTROL
Advanced Parental Control enables you to
control, restrict and monitor users of your PC.
You can control for how long and when users
are allowed to use the computer. Also stop the use
of specific programs, block access to any web page,
restrict access to Windows functions like the Control
Panel and more.
Using this software you can also block chat or web
site activities and intercept the user if specific
keywords (of your choice) are encountered within
any web page. In addition to access control, the
program can also record each user's activities,
including screenshots, keystrokes and more.
- Limit activities to a time and duration
appropriate for each child
- Monitor activities you choose including
actual screenshots, keystrokes and more
- Block access to inappropriate Internet
content or lock the Internet altogether
- Gain complete peace of mind knowing
that your child is well-protected online
User Time Management
The main benefit of Advanced Parental Control is its User Time Management system. Parents can specify how long and when their child is allowed use the computer OR the Internet itself. Each child can be assigned scheduled times that they are allowed to use either one. A overall time limit can also be set for each user. So if a user exceeds their limit they will not be able to access at anytime.
- Daily or Weekly Limits and Scheduling
Completely block computer usage for the hours you specify each day. You can also set time limits for users, for example one hour per day or ten hours per week.
- Internet Time Management
You can additionally restrict access to the Internet in a similar manner as the computer itself. This lets your kids use the computer but restricts access to the Internet.
Activity Filtering Features
The Advanced Parental Control system also includes activity and content filtering features. These features allow you to completely block users from using programs you choose. You can also block web sites based on the site's name or keywords you specify. For example you can block any page containing the term "sex" or "myspace" within the page's text or web address.
- Application Restriction
View a list of every application installed on your computer. Choose the programs you don't want the selected user to have access to. You can even schedule times when the blocking will not happen.
- Web Site Filtering
Enter a list of web sites that you do not want the selected user to visit. If a listed site is visited it won't load. It will show a blank screen. Works in Internet Explorer and Firefox.
- Keyword Filtering
Enter specific words or phrases which will trigger a web page to be blocked. For example you can block any page containing the term "sex" or "myspace" within a web page.
System Restriction Tweaks

Activity Monitoring Features
For additional protection you can choose to monitor activity for just some or all users. A variety of recordings can be captured to have actual proof - just in case you need it. You can capture actual pictures of the screen as often as once per second. You can also record every single keystroke typed, including any type of password. Advanced Parental Control also lets you view a list of every window accessed to see exactly how their time is being spent. And now, Advanced Parental Control can silently send activity reports directly to your email address.
- Screenshot Reporting
Record an actual picture of the current window taken as often as once per second. The built-in viewer includes date and time stamp along with the title of the current window.
- Web Sites Reporting
No matter which browser they use you can record a list of every web site URL they visit, along with time and date and an easy way to open any of the recorded URL's.
- Keystrokes Reporting
Also included is the option to record each key typed on your computer's keyboard. You can even monitor for specific applications only. Record passwords with ease.

While some other programs can be easily overridden, Advanced Parental Control has total security in mind. Advanced Parental Control's log files can be stored in any location you choose. There are no tray icons and the program does not show up in the taskbar. Only you can access the interface by typing your secret password, keeping your filtering and monitoring 100% secure.
- Customize Log File Location
For the highest level protection, all Advanced Parental Control log files can be stored in any folder you choose. This gives you the ability to store the logs in a folder that the user will not know about.
- Not Visible in the Taskbar or System Tray
While you are inside the software it acts like a normal program. But when others are using the PC, there are no traces in the Taskbar, Tray or Applications tab in Task Manager.
