Parental Control Key
The ControlKey system simply plugs into the computer's
port to provide advanced security protection. It works in conjunction
with Windows software to provide access only to the user identified with
the ControlKey and with the right password. As the key holder, you can
program the system to provide as much, or as little, access to
individual users as you see fit. When you remove the ControlKey token
from the USB port, ControlKey locks down Internet access so that you can
easily control when and how long your children are able to use the
Internet. When the ControlKey token is plugged into the USB port, you
can use all of the computer and the Internet like normal. However, once
the ControlKey token is removed, the computer operates in restricted
mode (based on guidelines you can customize) and doesn't allow Internet
access. That way, you know that if you have the ControlKey with you,
your children are not online without your permission.

operate on a simple theory - raise the computer up to allow more cool air to
circulate, thus cutting down on the heat you feel as well as the heat damage
to your computer.
