Microsoft expects to release a first version of new, no cost parental control software for Windows XP by the end of June.
The first version of the new software will let people filter online content and get activity reports on Web sites that were visited by others, Microsoft representatives said.
An update, which Microsoft said will come out later this year, will add a feature called "contact management," which lets parents approve contacts on Windows Live Mail and Windows Live Messenger, an e-mail and instant messaging service, respectively. The feature also gives control over who can access their kids' blogs on Microsoft's Spaces service.
