Some users may prefer to install Internet filters that allow browser access to certain Web sites and block access to other sites. Trial versions of these filters are available by downloading from the Internet. Remember that new Web sites are being prepared all the time, so you might want to return to the Internet filter vendor site to update your filter. Internet Explorer users can establish viewing settings with the Content Advisor dialog box already in IE, shown in Figure 9.20 of the textbook.
