Assigning a password.
Either ask a friend to set the password, or make it hard to remember by using the maximum number of characters and making them totally random. Most systems require you to repeat the password to ensure you have not mistyped, so youíll need to write the password down, then enter it twice, then fold the paper in half so you never see it again. Next, you need to work out what to do with the paper. Itís possible you might sometime discover a legitimate use for it. For instance, no software is perfect and you might find it keeps you from something you need to see that is not pornographic. You could put it in an envelope and give it to a friend either to keep permanently or until you gain confidence that you can trust the software not to keep you from legitimate sites. For instance, you might tell him to destroy it after youíve tried it for so many days.

In response to my above request for suggestions, Dan sent me the following. He assures me that he has received no financial incentive to make this recommendation.
For those who struggle with porn and donít think a filter or accountability program will work because they can get around it, www.covenanteyes.com is amazing. Covenant Eyes is an accountability program that monitors your activity on your computer. It monitors internet browsers as well as most file sharing programs.
It cannot be uninstalled or shut off easily. You have to call a phone number to get an uninstallation code to uninstall it and that will show up on your accountability report. It also has a panic button that you can push to shut off all Internet on your computer if you feel the temptation is becoming too much. You have to call a phone number to get it reactivated.
You can have as many accountability partners as you want that can see your Internet activity. The program costs $7 per month, but itís one of the most worthwhile things someone can do to help break the addiction.
I have the program installed on my computer with my best friend as my accountability partner, and with the help of Godís strength and Covenant Eyes, Iíve been able to break free from a yearsí long addiction to porn. This program is completely worth it!
