Check out their quite easy and powerful content restrictions.
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.
(May not be enough for teenagers - consult your own advisers - this solution sure beats doing nothing and there is no excuse)

Again, maybe something got messed up while installing it (I'm not working for any of the filters so I wouldn't know. Have you asked them to take a look? They can easily disable and/or uninstall to troubleshoot.) But the Calculator crashing (and same with other unrelated - not internet-connected - Windows apps) can't happen from a service/software intercepting internet traffic which doesn't hog a lot of resources.

I did reach out to them. They replied a while later, "now it should work".
I restarted, still nothing. they told me to update my computer, did that, still nothing.

Again, those apps should not be affected by the filter operation itself (and not by the resources used.) Only possible thing that something went south with the setup (but still very strange to affect the whole computer operation.)

Reply to that email that it is still not good. I wonder - if you can please come back and keep us posted - what they're gonna try/do, and if when the completely remove it the issue disappears.

will report back.
I belive they blocked traffic to Windows store, cuz it might have content that needs to be blocked.
and that affected all related apps. but I'm no technician.

They might block traffic to the Windows store but that doesn't affect apps that are already installed fully (same as it works without internet connection altogether.) Maybe it was in the middle of updating the apps from the store and it got blocked in the middle? Let's see what they say.

Does it actually work on a kindle?
Other filters can easily be overridden.

Still using  K9 ( I have a downloaded file from a while ago that still works), why would would I switch to Techloq or something similar ( If I not considred that K9 is easy to get around).

Finally after months of trying to figure it out I ended up getting Techloq. Impressed. Really customizable, Skin tone filter works really good. Very good response time.  14 Day Money back guarantee.
Mishpacha Magazine had coupon code for them that gives 10 % off- MISH010. Good Until May 1.

For a few days it was frustrating and there was growing pains but I felt they took care of in a timely manner and were responsive to my needs.

Like what? Computer issues, or filtering?

Filtering for example having them opening up certain websites that were mix website and could have into one of two categories.
