For blocking certain websites, you can edit the Hosts File, and it goes this way 1. Open MyComputer 2. Browse C: (or your Operating system drive) 3. Browse Windows ->System32->drivers->etc So the Location will be C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc In the etc folder look for the file hosts 4. Open this file hosts with notepad. 5. At the bottom of the file, add the line as shown below: 127.0.0.1 www.***.com 127.0.0.1 www.***.com ... 7. Save the file. 8. reboot your computer. Note: In this way add any number of sites you want, however you will need to prefix it with "127.0.0.1". And this way is easily got around http://www.aobo-****-filter.com/

Block the particular website through registry


It cannot be done via the Windows Registry.

However, try:
Click START
Click RUN
Enter 'notepad \windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts'
Press ENTER.

Add a line into the file:

127.0.0.1 www.ibm.com

and then 'File' and 'Save'.

This will cause all accesses to 'www.ibm.com' to *NOT* work.
