K9 Web Protection gives you free high-class security software available and designed for home computers.
K9 delivers the comprehensive protection you need. With K9, you get the same advanced web filtering technology used by enterprise and government institutions worldwide — all with a user-friendly interface that allows you to control Internet use in your home.
Automatic content ratings - New websites and pages are created every minute, and no one person can possibly rate or categorize all of them. To ensure protection against new or previously unrated websites, Blue Coat’s K9 Web Protection patent-pending Dynamic Real-Time Rating™ (DRTR) technology automatically determines the category of an unrated web page, and allows or blocks it according to your specifications.
Continuous protection that won’t slow down your computer — Caching is the method your Web browser uses to save frequently used data, which increases efficiency by reducing the amount of information requested over the Internet. K9 uses Blue Coat’s unique caching technology, so your Internet experience is always as fast as possible.

Besides for having a filter, it's also crucial to have reporting software. A filter blocks sites that are deemed problematic. A reporting system tracks the Internet sites visited and provides a report to another person, such as a parent, friend or Rav.
Since no filter is perfect, everyone needs the deterrent of possible embarrassment in order to restrict his viewing to what is kosher. Reporting software reports every website visited. That report is then sent, either daily or weekly, to somebody one would be uncomfortable with if he found out you had engaged in behavior unbefitting a ben-Torah. Maybe a chavrusa, a Rabbi or Rav. If you do not have that, the filter will probably not work for too long. But if you have a filter AND a reporting system, you have half a chance.
