    BEIJING, June 9 (Xinhua) -- China said Tuesday it would have all new computers in China pre-installed with a filter software, in a bid to protect minors from "unhealthy information" from the Internet.

    All computers produced or sold in China after July 1 would be installed with such software, said the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MITT).

    Computers produced outside China are also subject to such requirement before they can be sold in the country.
