Blocking a specific Web site .

  Rtus 09:13 23 Mar 2007

the standard Microsoft Ie6 /Ie7 filter doesnt seem to work (or I havent found out how to set it) as it doesnt meet the criteria I need to set.
I need to block 1 site (at the moment) to restrict access on 1 computer connected to the www with wifi unit.
Problem being I need it to as invisable as possible So the certain user cant work out how to get it unblocked.normally this sites fine ,but lately its I assume being hacked replacing the jpegs of objects on sale with unsuitable content.Ive complained various times to owners who seem incapable of monitoring/moderating their site or responding to my emails about this.

Hi, in IE try Tools>Internet Options>Content, I think there you can set IE not to accept sites of your choice.

You could use a hosts file click here and edit it in Notepad to add the site to be blocked.

Yes you can do it that way Technotiger but if the other certain user is computer savvy then it is all too easy to remove the url from the 'restricted sites'.
By using the 'Host file', an IP address can be inserted thus blocking that site. A bit more convoluted in setting up but one way that few people seem to know about.

Thats allready been tried as in my original post . > I have to be able to block the URL myself as this site doesnt normally have anything like this restriction its not RSCAi tagged.
