Internet Explorer Microsoft has said that the version of IE7 for Vista will differ slightly from the one for XP and down. "I want to announce that we will be naming the version of IE7 in Windows Vista 'Internet Explorer 7+'. While all versions of IE7 are built from the same code base, there are some important differences in IE7+, most significantly the addition of Windows Vista-only features like Protected Mode, Parental Controls, and improved Network Diagnostics. These features take advantage of big changes in Windows Vista and weren't practical to bring downlevel."

If you have such a tech savvy child then the only way to make some filtering/protection is probably using a router/firewall/proxy/filter to access the internet.

That is, if the kid does not have a laptop or other connected device, and will not access unprotected wifi APs from the neighborhood :-)

...or, you know, you could actually try to talk to your son/daughter and let him/her make responsible choices :-)
