Not only PC users at businesses but also PC users at home are exposed to security threats. Elearning, which makes it possible to study anytime and anywhere, is an effective education method that can be used for information security education. To create scalable and flexible e-learning for such an education, "ELSEC" was developed. The experimental results of previous studies found this system to be useful as instructional content. However, although ELSEC was initially used only for education, it has the capability to support user operations to achieve actual information security. Therefore, we further developed ELSEC as a user operation support tool. As a support tool, it offers an operator support function as well as an e-learning function for introducing a filtering service into personal computers. This paper describes an application experiment to evaluate whether the support tool created by ELSEC is useful.
