Situation: I have a PC at home and the PC is shared by the family so my brother and 3 sisters share the PC. I am afraid that my brother would open sites that are not good and maybe phonographic in content and my sisters might see it too.

Question: How will I block specific sites on my PC so that only good sites and not phonographic sites in content will be accessed on my internet.
