I hate to raise the dead but for anyone coming across this via search as I did:

Methods to block porn:

1. Windows Hosts file: specify websites by name.
2. OpenDNS: completely free.
3. Commercial filters: up side is content filtering not just blocking by name, examples are bloxx net filter, homeguard parental controls...etc


Things to look out for:

Proxy servers. Few commercial filters will be able to stop porn requested through proxy servers...however you may not need this if your kids are not very tech savy..
