what do you recommend for Jr's computer to limit time online?


By now it's likely you've already found Microsoft Family Safety. For those who haven't it can control curfew times, as well as set time limits.

Open DNS (now owned by Cisco, who build firewalls and other network equipment for commercial companies ( https://www.opendns.com/home-internet-security/) is excellent for protecting you and your little people from unpleasant websites.

If you want such control to be a little more granular (i.e you can reach 'unpleasant' websites but little Johnny can't) then you need a suitable router, such as those provided by NetGear which tie in with the OpenDNS service. This option may or may not allow configuration of curfews. OpenDNS on its own does not.

Thanks for the list! Used a few of these myself, and using Avast currently on my laptop, and using AVG on my more powerful computer to increase its performance when gaming, easy to use etc so quite nice - But that avast lady voice is so loud when I have my headphones on at max volume :D
