Hey I have been having an issue lately and it involves not being able to block pornography downloads through torrent websites and file share sites. I have k9 Web Protection software which i absolutely love, but it and no other software i think that is available does a great job in filtering out whatever category you choose to block it doesn't include torrent sites! Any help would be appreciated.

Viruses, trojans, worms and other malware have signature code, or invoke certain filenames, and have certain effects all of which allow them to be tracked and identified [by action, at least], and so can be blocked or eliminated. Pornography inter alia is just words, sounds, images, as disparate as can be. And with torrent sites it is you who, perhaps unconsciously, is inviting it in. It is a thoroughly different thing if it downloads as a result of a malware - that can be fixed, usually easily. But when you initiate it only a site blocker can help. Not all pornography comes with a badge proclaiming it to be. Masquerading is the game of the day... you may not mean to get it, but once you are tricked into it you may be further tempted.
There are plenty of content filters out there [net nannies], many are free. M$ has one. And there is a site blocker built into [and working in] the XP you bought.
