Everything is funneled through our district's servers and their porn 
killers work very well for sites that are detected when a search engine 
is being used.  The problem is that these students are typing the URLs 
into the browser address line and going directly to the site.  Our 
districts policy is that when caught these students are to loose their 
Internet access for the rest of the school year.  That is the reason I 
asked about changing things in the user profiles.

I will set her drop boxes up before the week is out.  Thanks for the how 
to on that.
