To block access to certain site link

How can I block access to certain sites. This is my own computer, and 4 of us are using now. O?S is Windows XP SP-3, and the Browser is Google Chrome. The matter is, for example, if I wish to block the 'Facebook" access from this computer, can I do it. I'm the Administrator to this system. Is there any way? If yes, how can I do it, and to block all of the users to access Facebook?

SOURCE: Certain Sites hang and don't load to browser on one computer but does on another

Now many web sites use flash player for their add content as well as for the menu content. if you have not installed flash player these sites will just show loading but will not load. more over what happens is the site will check whether your sys has the app installed atherwise it will prompt you to install with an yellow information bar. Once you install this the site loads as usual. The problem is when you have a slow internet connection the site is not able to check your sys for prompting you to install the required app. thus the site hangs. Check if you have installed adobe flash player activex 9 player.

Report your site as a "False Positive", via:

and monitor this "forum", to see if they unblock it, or if they explain why they choose to keep blocking it.

SOURCE: Certificate error on web site.

This is basically an Internet Explorer 7 Website’s Security Certificate problem! You have to self-sign the certificate on the client computer or add the URL manually to the trusted security zone. When you are trying to access a secure web page, you receive the warning message:

"There is a problem with this website's security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority."

Or

"Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept data you send to the server."

To fix this issue, you can follow either of the methods:

meth1.jpg
meth2.jpg
ie%281%29.jpg

Method 1:

You have to install the Microsoft Windows Small Business Server 2003 (Windows SBS) self-signed certificate on the client computer. To do this, follow these steps:

  • In Windows Internet Explorer 7, click Continue to this website (not recommended).
A red Address Bar and a certificate warning appear.
  • Click Certificate Error button to open the information window.
  • Click View Certificates > click Install Certificate.
  • Click Yes, to install the certificate, when warning message appear.

Note: For Windows Vista users, right click on Internet Explorer icon. Select Run as Administrator.


Back to top


Method 2:

Add the URL to the Trusted Sites security zone:

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Go to Menu bar > Tools > Internet Options.

    tool.jpg
  • Click Security > Trusted sites > Sites

    sec.jpg
  • Type the URL in the Add this website to the zone text box > uncheck Require server verification >Add > click OK

    trust.jpg
  • Click OK to exit.

I want to unblock my badoo and facebook site om my pc


Step 1:
Block and unblock internet sites using your macintosh computer. It is easy to set up, and easy to change. Follow these steps to determine what type of blocking you want to use, how to set it up, and how to unblock sites in the future.

DECIDE WHAT YOUR GOAL REALLY IS IN BLOCKING SITES. Be clear about this up front so you can find the best solution. Is this blocking for you? Is it for your kids? Is it to keep employees off of certain sites? Answer these questions first before stabbing in the blocking-sites-darkness. To block certain types of sites for all users on a computer or system - use OpenDNS.com, see step 2.

To block specific sites one at a time use the terminal command in Step 3.
To log (rather than block) specific sites use covenanteyes.com see Step 4.
To only ALLOW certain sites use the parental controls option, see Step 5. USE FREE OPEN DNS TO BLOCK CERTAIN TYPES OF SITES FOR ALL USERS. This is a great option for small businesses or households with agreed upon and uniform standards for internet usage. See the link Below. http://opendns.com/ Go to the site (see resource link near the bottom of this page). Click on the 'start using open dns' button. Choose whether you want the blocking to occur at the computer level, the router level, or the server level. Follow the step by step instructions. They have pictures... it really is simple. Best of all, it is FREE! b> TO BLOCK SPECIFIC SITES USE THE TERMINAL COMMAND IN MACOSX TO BLOCK THEM ONE AT A TIME. Few people really want to block only one or two sites. This is a wieldy way to provide internet security. But if that is your specific need this is for you. Another ehow article gives the detailed instructions (it's a bit technical) for this process. So it is linked both in the related articles to the right titled 'How to block access to websites in MacOS X' and in the resource link section at the bottom. TO LOG EVERYTHING YOUR COMPUTERS VIEW, USE COVENANT EYES. This program will log and score every site that is viewed by a computer on which it is installed. It will not allow the internet to run if it is disabled and will send you an alert if it is uninstalled. You set the preferences as to how often to receive reports. Go to covenanteyes.com and click the 'sign up now' button. It will guide you through the process. For around $8 a month this is a relatively cheap option that covers up to three computers. TO ONLY ALLOW CERTAIN SITES USE PARENTAL CONTROLS. If you are using the Leopard system then you can use the 'Parental Controls' feature found in System Preferences. Click on accounts. Check the box for parental controls. You can click on the content tab and then tick limit access to adult sites. You can also use button to add specific criteria to your block. Alternatively, simply add the specific sites you want allowed to the bookmark bar and type in your administrator's password. Then only those sites can be viewed. TO UNBLOCK SITES ON A MAC. To remove parental controls simply return to the systems preference, accounts, then parental controls section. Un-click the parental control box. Un-click any content specific controls. To remove open dns.com simply drag the program folder from applications into the trash. Isn't Mac great?

If you worked at the router or server level you will have to undo those steps and reconfigure your system to allow direct access to the internet. To uninstall covenant eyes you need the password to get an uninstall code. It cannot happen late at night.

Hi..I've got the evaluation taster set up on my 10.4 Mac. However it won't let me even get onto hotmail. What have I done wrong please?!


Go to this link below to download a manual for your software:

http://www.intego.com/pub/Manual_CBX4_en.pdf

From page 63 in your manual:
Using Web site Exceptions
In addition to using ContentBarrier X4’s built-in filtering categories, as described above, you can also restrict user access to certain web sites. You can add specific sites that are always allowed, and others that are always blocked. (You also have the option to only allow web access to certain sites; see Restricting Web site Access below for more on this
option.)

Hope this helps, let me know if I can help you with anything else. It would be very kind of you if this does work for you to please rate me or leave a short note. I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

How can i block certain website (mostely the torrent site)parentally. And prevent from downloading the torrent PERMANENTLY.


I use TrendMicro (about $40/year for three machines). You have decent parental control with it. You may also use "Resticted Sites" settings in Internet Explorer but it may not be as secure for you. The TrendMicro software requires a password to allow settings to be changed...not sure about IE.
