Suggestion: Have someone else have the password (or half and half with a spouse) and do the following:
Lock installing apps + remove browser + add apps you need (possible rules: no games, no sports, no entertainment, etc.).
[Occasionally an app will have a built in browser/or need to access a certain website - just go back in to settings (with password) and add that website].
There is time restrictions and more features too.

I'm running kaspersky for my anti virus and I seem to be having trouble running K9 together with that. Any solutions?

Googling tells me it's a known conflict (and I seem to remember something like that happening to me too), time to ditch Kaspersky? :P

I have a bunch of trend micro titanium anti virus and have no problems switching if that will work better. Anyone running K9 with trend?

Trend Micro isn't a good idea either. Go with AVG, Avast, Avira, or MSE (I recommend the latter).

alrighty then. thanks

ETA: hmmm my local computer expert apparently isn't too keen on MSE

You don't like MSE?
Its decent... But I deff wouldn't put it as being a secure protection

I like Norton a lot

Micro Trend is also good

Mcaffee and AVG are a total waste

(I have spent way to much time removing viruses from computers that had Mcaffe or AVG)

By who?

Why is it better than K9 (which is free)?

I installed K9 on a computer that had Mcaffee ... Also had an issue. My problem was that I wasnt able to access any webpage.

The reason was is that Mcaffee takes over windows firewall, and K9 wasnt on the list of application to go thru the firewall.

I assume that Kaspersky does the same. You have to go into Kaspersky and in the firewall option allow K9. (browse for the application, it should be in the folder - C:\Program Files\Blue Coat K9 Web Protection)

I'm not sure if that's it. Kaspersky detects it as a Trojan. I'll try later though

It's more complicated than that. Kaspersky + K9 (could) = slow internet connection.

I just read online that this is an issue. You will need to use a different AV

It seems the other one I have (trend) is also an issue. Any recommendations? Other than what ashero listed above

haven't heard great things about AVG and MSE on this site. Was under the impression that avast cost but just checked and saw there is a free version too.
