I'm hoping someone will have some good advice for ideas on how to filter the web from porn, etc on a computer that a 5yr old girl will be using.

Ideally something software based. Any ideas?

I would say adblock for one since some ads can contain things like that. I believe you'd have to use Google Chrome aka the best browser.

Just browsing though one of the other chrome extensions, I saw one called webfilter pro which looked like it could easily and quickly take care of your worries

AdBlock started out for Firefox. I haven't used any parental controls myself, but since there are so many add-ons for Firefox I would not be surprised if you could find something good there.

Also use strict filtering for Google.

There are lots of companies making software to stop you from doing that. I haven't used any, maybe someone else will chime in, or try google.

What kind of 5-year old do you have anyway that browses porn websites!?

5yr old? Dunno, but I can tell you my 8 yr old nephew was trying to go to Dicks Sporting Goods website once, and I can assure you dick.com is not the same as dickssportinggoods.com

So just want to make sure all bases are covered.

Easy... log into the router and setup a word filter.
I did that once as a joke blocking regular sites

Try K9 web protection. I use it on nephews computers and they haven't hacked it, YET.

Are you using Windows? If so, use Windows built in Parental controls/Windows Live Family Safety.
It is a great way to set, monitor and block what is seen on the computer.

You should look into your router/modem...mine has that, and a lot of other features for the parental control have. And my modem/router(hybrid) is from my ISP...so if you have a retail one it might even have more features.. Anyway, that seems like the best option because it's a lot more secure and the children cannot access the the router/modem unless they have the password to it. Because software configurations are basically useless lol...and browser addons..
