Netsweeper is a filtering option that is offered with the Totally Good Internet Filtered service for dial-up or broadband connections. You may have this filter if you want to prevent children from accessing unwanted sites on the Internet. To get past Netsweeper, you will need to override the filter so you can browse the Internet without restrictions. The filter in Netsweeper allows you to do this for set periods, such as one hour.
