Can you give me a slightly better description of what you'd like help doing so I can assist you better?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
When he was younger I tried parental controls but they make using the computer nearly impossible without interruption. Yesterday I started loading website lists into my host file, but even though there were 18000 sites in the list, I still find all kinds of porn in a simple google search.
Expert:  Mr.Med replied 3 months ago.

So do you want to block all porn websites is that your question please?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I would prefer that my internet provider would let me unsubscribe from pornography websites (similar to how we subscribe to channels on our television)

telus, they have a place online where I can add websites that I want to block. I could do this if I had access to a frequently updated list of porn websites
Expert:  Mr.Med replied 3 months ago.

I would suggest you to install a third party tool to filter porn website and search keys :

you can download it from below :
