A feature of Microsoft Internet Explorer that allows you to control user access to Web sites based on the content ratings of the sites.
The Internet provides individuals with access to a wide variety of information, but some of this information might be unsuitable for certain viewers. For example, parents are often concerned about their children being exposed to violent or sexually explicit material on the Internet.
Content Advisor lets you control the kind of Internet content that can be accessed using Internet Explorer. This is a useful feature in corporate networks that have high-speed connectivity to the Internet, since it can be used to discourage improper use of Web browsers on employee machines, thus helping to implement a company's acceptable use policy for the Internet. With Content Advisor, you can specify ratings settings to indicate acceptable levels of content to view with regard to sex, nudity, violence, and offensive language, and you can password-protect these settings.
Content Advisor functions properly only with Web sites that are rated.
