IE8 security add-on question

    Is there functionality in IE8, or in an add-on which can block certain
    information being sent from IE8 to a remote web site.
    E.g. if my kids started using my PC, can I stop them sending our address,
    phone number, etc? I'm thinking of an add-on that would block certain text
    from being sent to an internet site.
    I know education is the best thing, but who's kids ever do everyhting
    they're told ;)

    Thanks for any help.

    That being said, Tough Love is your best bet: Give your kids clear
    guidelines about their online behavior and computer use as well as the
    consequences of disregarding same. Then enforce the consequences.
