Cleaning Adult Material from classroom and home computersTeachers resources
When a school provides computer access to students, it becomes the responsibility of the school to ensure that the computer systems are free of inappropriate and offensive materials. Internet Filters are a good preventative measure, but they are not always 100% effective, and the internet is not the only way that unwanted material can arrive on servers or computer hard-drives. Email, CDROM, floppy disk etc. are all methods by which students can introduce unwanted items.

A new parental control software product, Snitch, is designed specifically to address this problem, in educational institutions and at home. Snitch searches the computer's hard drive, checking for the most common forms of adult material - images, movies, audio files, as well as checking internet history, searching for obscene language, checking for hidden files, and more.

Teachers will find this to be an excellent tool for finding and eliminating any obscene or adult related material appearing on school computers. Our initial tests of this product have shown it to be very effective, with many undesirable files being detected on our common use library computers.

You can download a Free Demo and read more about this product at the Snitch website - www.hyperdynesoftware.com
