  • blocking unsuitable internet sites - Windows XP

    Hi

    I have tried using tools, internet options, security settings, restricted sites, sites and then posting the web site address and clicking on ok. It doesn't seem to work but when I go back to check it the web site address is in the resticted sites but it doesn't restrict access. Can you advise?

    Thanks

      Hi

      Its Windows XP Home Edition. The site I am trying to block is http://www.funny-games.biz/main.html and I would like to block access to any of the games from this address.

      Thanks

        Hi

        Just tried the method I described again and it does work. It allows me to view the site but doesn't let me play the games (which is my aim). Is there anyway I can block it so I can't even view the home page?

        Thanks

          do you use a router firewall.you may be able to block it via that.
