    See there is 2 sides of the coin - some think pron and stuff like that is not bad at all (j***ing off is normal).
    The guy might not have ADHD or authism but rather teenage hormons. Could be a classic borther hates brother situation in which on need to be mean to the other one.

    When it comes to a full blown addiction there IS a problem. Alcohol is not bad per se, but when it has gone to alcoholism there is a problem. Now I can't tell how big of a problem the guy has, but if there is an addiction I think his family should take some action.

    EDIT: And if it's a mental disorder involved? Then they should take action.

    Not good - when I closed the firefox tab with this website i got a very annoying pop up that would not go away without restarting my browser - that usually tells you that the website is scam.

    I have some psych issues myself (not that this comes as a big surprise to anyone), but I fail to see how that gives any family member the right to tell me what I can't do online. Anyone with really serious issues will (or should be) in an institution or group home. If this guy has his shit together enough to be on his own, more or less, I think the family should be there for support rather than enforcement.

    So as I see it, this isn't really a porn issue but rather an economic one. If this guy had some strange fetish for phishing sites or Nigerian princes, the question would be how to block those - right?

    So the real solution to the problem is to find a way of minimizing or eliminating the infections his rig gets from surfing porn.

    If I'm wrong, then someone needs to explain to me why his family is trying to regulate how much he jerks off.

    I should of added that he his in some kind of home for the disabled, and that the nurse's there do regulate how much time he spends on his computer, but the time's he is on it he's causing major problems on his rig and costing his family a fortune to keep taking it to the local shop.

    How about this: KACE "The Secure Browser uses virtualization technology to provide a safer web experience to users and organizations. When using the Secure Browser any changes or malicious files inadvertently downloaded from the Internet are contained within the secure browser, keeping the underlying OS and computer secure from hostile changes"

    "Free/ runs on Windows 7, Windows Vista or Windows XP (32-bit only, 64-bit systems are not supported at this time)"

    Provides a virtualized and contained Firefox v3.6 Browser with Adobe Reader and Flash plug-ins

    Rapidly reset any changes made during normal use back to their initial state, enabling easy recovery from infections or attacks

    View statistics related to the number of processes detected and blocked

    Set white and black lists to limit access to known good sites, or prevent access to known bad sites to further limit the risk of attack and infection

    Or, some other virtualization method to allow him to wack it and when he logs gets off - so do all traces, but the goo on the keyboard(plastic or silicone covers for this or nurses could give and train in condom use).
    :ohwell:

    There's that and also the question of how would his "interests" be redirected if you're successful?

    Is he going to start hitting on random women? Will he get involved with another patient possibly? Sometimes you have to ask which is the lesser of the various evils. He's obviously got a lot of, let's call it 'sexual pressure', that he has to contain. Right now, maybe the porn and fapping is a like relief valve. If it is, then what happens if you do succeed in shutting it down?

    I was going to post before you that he could rape someone in the worst case if refused porn but deciced to not do it for some reason - we think in the same pattern.

    I'm wondering what he would do once his primary source of porn is gone....

    He may dedicate his time to destroying the person who took away his preciousss...

    I understand your point of view's and do agree totally, but this guy is in his 40's, and if he doesn't have porn, he just jerks off anyways, his family have already took into account pretty much everything you guy's have thought of here, which is obviously a good sign! he just like's to play with himself, the porn made it that much more pleasurable for him I'd imagine :laugh:

    I guess the perfect software would allow me to set it for him to be able to use a selected handfull of sites for his personal use.

    Some of your guys post's here made me :roll:

    I'd have to say, keep "controlled" amounts. Cut the whole source off, and think where he will redirect those "desires/rage"

    edit: If that's his situation, just give him a selection to choose from, then.

    Too much of anything isn't good for you. Even if it's just porn.

    If the porn is affecting the guy negatively or affecting the people that also live there then I would see the point of his brother trying to "help". There could be more than meets the eye here, the guy trying to help his brother is probably just trying to help him from becoming one of those creepy guys that sits in his room all day whacking off... if there are children in the house this could also contribute to the reason why he wants to limit this. There could be many reasons why he wants to limit this porn issue.

    I don't want to start a debate on whether or not it is the right of someone to dictate what another does but if his brother is a live in and not contributing financially or in other areas than I could totally see why the guy wants to put an end to the house constantly vibrating.

    I myself would not tolerate anything like this in my house unless it never affected me or bothered me because it was discrete. If there was porn playing at high volume from a roomates door 24/7 or any other evidence of it coming from the room then he would get 1 warning before becoming an ex-roomate. I understand this is a brother and it's alot different than a roomtate but if you have to ask a friend to help then it must be a valid concern.

    On a lighter note... you can always add soft-peter to his kool-aid.

    You can just let it fix its own way... The mind may be willing but the flesh will be too swollen and bruised to go on. :laugh:

    I'm sure we all know of porn sites that don't give viruses. Why not just give him a list of porn sites that don't give viruses? If he follows the list given to him, there shouldn't be any problems. If he keeps getting viruses, then just block the websites that give viruses.

    I don't know where to stand as my first two personal built computers were paid for by me....distributing information related to said material to my peers. Being a Pusher Man I can help with some stuff.

    *Limiting his sites. Places with free sample material usually pay their bills by advertising their paid service in a way to get you to click yes. Other places with free material pay the bills by providing links to less secure site and places you may not want a computer to be with extreme protection. This being the case I don't think this will help much, but it may.

    *Dedicated supply. If the material is already on his computer and easy to access, he would not need the Internet and you can just disconnect it. He gets his private time and the computer gets to not die a slow death from infection. This would work if he is cool with watching the same XX number of videos over and over; however, something tells me you would end up being his Pusher Man and I don't know your feelings on that.

    *Software blocking should work as may sites are required to have ratings. You can see the ratings buy most of the software listed can see them. They can block all X rated sites, but that will only get most of them. I am not well versed in Net Nanny style software, but this is my vote.

    *OpenDNS will block certain sites, domains, etc. but you will be constantly updating it as he will just find new ones. Blocking words....well a search for nearly anything will give you at least 2 porn links. Have you every tried to search for something that was not school or academic? The results are usually like Ad, ad, Amazon, Wikipedia, porn link, porn link, what you wanted, porn link, forum post talking about how they found what you were looking for. So that is just not plausible as you would have to block 99% of the english language.
