Hi to all,

I tried to search forums and I couldn’t find this problem.

My son has been visiting usabit and some other sites like it and downloading illegal downloads .

I went to block it in internet options/restricted sites and I am still able to access the site.

Does anyone know how to block a website, thanks in advance.

Hi Jimmy,

Is this on your computer?
Have you set him as a standard user? ..... if so you can set the Parental Controls.

These settings will only apply to that particular account though.
So from your account you'll still be able to access those sites.

These links will help to explain the settings.....

There is also a video on You Tube that explains it as well.

All Admin accounts should be password protected for security reasons.
Glad you sorted the problem.

I was going to suggest OpenDNS because you can select the type of websites you want to block!
