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

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
