How to block websites using windows, block websites


Hello...
This tip will be very useful for you.If you want to deny access to any website, you can block any website in your computer or laptop using the internal ip settings in the host's files in the windows directory.
There are softwares available to block websites, but we can easily do that using windows files itself.
The steps to be followed to restrict a website from accessing are detailed given below.
Go through the steps correctly and i have added screen shots of the steps for easy understanding, look at it and try out your self.


Steps:
1] Browse C:WINDOWSsystem32driversetc .
2] Find the file named "HOSTS" .
3] Open it in notepad.

4] Under "127.0.0.1 local host" Add 127.0.0.2 www.sitenameyouwanttoblock.com , and that site will be no longer accessible.

5] Save the notepad... Ctrl+S...
6] Done...

Now it will be like
127.0.0.1 local host
127.0.0.2 www.sitenameyouwanttoblock.com

-->www.sitenameyouwanttoblock is now inaccessible<--

c63e553.jpg


Now when you type the URL of the website in the address in your browser which you have added in the internal ip and on pressing enter...
It will show like " oops the link appears to be broken"...
And your internet connection will not connect to the website server.

For every site that you want to add in the ip , just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip (127.0.0.2) and then type the URL of the site that you want to block.
IE: 127.0.0.3 www.blablabla.com
127.0.0.4 www.blablabla.com
127.0.0.5 www.blablabla.com


If you want to make it again accessible, delete the URL and the corresponding internal ip and save the HOSTS file.

Thats it...

You can use this to prevent children from getting in to porn portals , scam sites or any other sites...

You can use this to stop children from getting in to virus portals , scam sites or any fake sites...

Hope it will be a useful tip for you... I will try to post lots more useful tips in the future... Encourage me by voting for my posts...

Thanks for viewing my post....

Have a great year...

Thank you...

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.

Internet problems


Do you mean the sites in question time out and you get the famous Cannot be displayed screen, or do you get something odd? Is it possible you have a flash or script killer plug in running full steam ahead in firefox blocking everything. Have you done any activeX blocking (SpywareBlaster) tinkering?

How deep did you do the virus scan? I would do boot scans with Spybot and Super Spyware remover.

When in doubt, re-install FF when all else fails.

Norton keeps blocking my router because it thinks a particular website is introducing a "Portscan" worm. It then blocks all access to any website for 30 minutes! Patrick


If you are running XP service pack 2 or higher you have the Windows firewall installed.
Windows firewall will always conflict with a third party firewall and despite the fact Norton informs you the Windows firewall is disabled it's not.
Norton is a serious resource hog, consider removing Norton and going with one of the free antivirus apps like AVG 8.0 or Avast.
Enabling the Windows firewall and using a router will protect you, all modern routers have a built in hardware firewall.

Can't access certain websites


Hi,

Check to see if any part of the program is still installed on your computer and delete them. if not, right click on your internet icon and go to internet properties and go to security tab and check restricted sites and remove the blocked sites as the security suite may have blocked them.

Need large disc support for old emachine, flash bios? or try restore cds?


Hi,
flashing a bios, can render your machine/motherboard useless.
You should always ensure any bios download is from a trusted source. if you experience a power failure, or an incomplete bios file. your computers as good as dead.
Windows 95/98 only supports disk drives to a certain capacity. if you updated to windows 2000/ME/XP your problems may be solved. I,d certainly try that first.
Bios flashing Last resort, even after finding a reliable bios update. also ensure the bios file is 256mb-512mb or equivalent. as this is standard bios file size.
Finally check that your hard-drive does not have a jumper ( Small white/black ) plastic block restricting the drives registered size.
When you install windows XP, it will ask you if you wish to enable LBA ( large block Allocation ) Select Y ( yes )
