5 ways to protect youth from Internet predators.

In a decision on March 22, Senior U.S. District Judge Lowell Reed Jr. struck down as "unconstitutional" the 1998 U.S. Law (Child Online Protection Act) that makes it a crime for commercial Web site operators to let children access "harmful" material, as "too broad."

In response to the ruling, David A. Milman, CEO of the national independent computer repair company RESCUECOM, stated in a press release, "For many parents, their children know as much if not more about their computers than they do. However, this decision puts the burden squarely on parents to take action to protect their children," he says.

RESCUECOM recommends parents incorporate the following five steps to ensure their children's safety:

  • Use Internet content filtering software such as the Net Nanny, CyberPatrol or RESCUECOM Internet Security Suite.
  • Place your home computer in the family room, living room or other open areas in your home.
  • Monitor the amount of time your children spend online.
  • Educate your children on the dangers of online threats in the same manner you would use when discussing the dangers of talking to strangers.
  • Make sure your Windows automatic updates are turned on and your content filters are up to date.

"Now more than ever it is vital to make sure our children are protected and that the computers in our homes have the proper filters and warning systems against harmful content ... and this protection is easy to put in place," Milman stated in the release.

...I am so thankful for Rescuecom for saving my computer and my sanity. I spent a week trying to remove viruses from my computer with a program I bought online that promised 24/7 premium customer service and that was a lie. This company is the real deal. I received immediate help, within a minute of me signing up and David was very kind and knowledgeable and once my computer finished its scan 7 hrs later I immediately received another call from Roy to complete the next step. All I had to do was give him access to my computer and he did the rest of the work while I did other things. He called me as soon as he was done and then went over everything with me and helped me with issues I was having with my gmail account. Exemplary customer service and highly skilled technicians and peace of mind for me, I am extremely grateful and I am now a customer for life! less

...I am thoroughly impressed with this company. The attention to detail, a high level of professionalism, and sticking with some rather pesky problems until both the technician and I were satisfied with the results. Bravo! less
