Tools-> Internet Options-> Privacy-> go to Websites (at the bottom) and click Edit. You can then block the site you want.

Sorry, should have said that's in IE6. I'm pretty sure there are similar facilities in Opera and Netscape.

Opps, sorry, it did not work after I restarted my computer, I can now again acess the site????

Dunno but, you can undo your actions by going back and go through the procedure in reverse.

Sorry again, misunderstood. In my system I have loads of sites blocked (mostly advertisers) and all that appears in the box is the name of site i.e. something like All the www's and http's are not there.
