Giveaway of the Day - Kid Savvy PC

December 12, 2009
This giveaway is not available any more.

Kid Savvy PC provides a secure desktop for children to develop computer skills, surf kid-safe websites, and enjoy educational and entertaining activities. It comes pre-loaded with many web links and activities, and requires minimal computer knowledge to set up. Your PC will remain safe from inadvertently deleted files, and your children will remain safe from inappropriate internet content. Kid Savvy PC also allows children to run other installed children’s software and games.

It runs like any other program on your computer, except it safeguards important system files from access. It blocks access to the normal Windows desktop and start-menu while providing access to only certain programs and websites that the parent has pre-approved.

Kid Savvy PC also allows access to selected installed games. Many parents find the timer feature quite handy for limiting their children’s computer time.

  1. The Good
    * Little to no setup required – just run it and let your kid on.
    * Has ability to block web content and provide a “suggested” list of websites.
    * Blocks all programs except the ones the user specifically gives permission to access.
    * Can (optionally) block Alt + Ctrl + Del.
    * Comes with 17 games for the kids to play.
    * Gives users the ability to limit the amount of time kids can be on.
    * Program is password protected so kids can’t tamper with it.

    The Bad
    * Does not properly block web content.
    * Does not allow blocking of web content based on type of content.
    * When adding programs to the “allowed programs” list, users can only select from the programs listed in the Start Menu.
    * No ability to add more than the 17 activities/games that come preconfigured with the program by default.
    * No ability to recurrently limit the computer usage time.
    * Scrolling right/left in the suggested website list is a little bit funky.

  2. I paid for this a few weeks ago on the company’s site.
    I am a huge fan since I can let my little ones play on the computer without them deleting the operating system. I paid $200 last month to have it reinstalled because of them. So far they havent messed anything up :)

  3. K9 Web Protection does not protect the PC from file changes or restrict access to certain programs only.
    So K9 Web Protection is not a free alternative at all.
