I want to block one or more Website's for some security purpose. I will not be in home for some time, thus I won't allow anyone to open those sites. Now is there any software or else by which I can block the addresses of those websites? They shouldn't be opened from any browser, IE, Opera or FF..,Please help me, this is kinda urgent.
Thanks in advance.

Yup..!! Block them from Firewall. That's all.

Also use wildcards, to block them if proceed by google search, or proving diff. type of redirection path along with original URL's.

Blocking Website using Windows Hosts File is quite easy. Check this guide: How to: Use the HOSTS file to block websites in Windows? - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net :)

And if you are not comfortable with above, than you can block the Websites using your Firewall. Not sure, where's the option in NIS though?

:)


Advanced user can always shutdown firewall /close blocking softwares via task manager and other ways

Right off the assembly line
Do I need to restart the computer if after editing the host file to block websites?
