Recently a client dropped off a computer wanting it us to install a website blocker on her computer to her kids from getting on bad sites. There are many different types of software that will do this. #1 is probably Cybersitter. We purchased this software for the client installed it and restarted.
I could no longer browse the web on anything but HTTPS pages, much to my surprise Cybersitter doesn’t have a number you can call for tech support. Even after disabling Cybersitter it still didn’t work. After investigating further it turns out that the AVG toolbar that was installed on the computer when AVG was installed was interfering in some way and causing the pages not to load correctly. The simple fix for this problem is to uninstall the AVG toolbar. This leaves AVG intact and allows Cybersitter to block bad websites as it’s is designed too.
