I dont want anyone on my computer to visit a certain website -

How do I restrict access to that site in XP ? Only that web site...

it's most likely in "administrative tools."


- Thanks

I don't think there is a way to restrict a single website using native XP tools, you'd have to use some type of firewall/nannyware solution to block one website...or you could add that site to your hosts file and make it resolve to a different address

in fact thats probably easiest, you'd have to create a hosts file so that when the site is typed it it resolves to a diff address...problem is it would affect you too and be a pain to manage

hope I helped any

Go here, Hosts file directory and open the hosts file with Notepad, the put in the website you wannt blocked, for example:

127.0.0.1 website.ws
127.0.0.1 qkimg.net
127.0.0.1 mirror.qkimg.net
127.0.0.1 www.qksrv.net
127.0.0.1 www.999central.com
127.0.0.1 treeloot.com

Hope this helps.

Oops, I guess I shouldn't have added that as an http link, heres the path to the hosts file: c:/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc

Hrm, I see that in my post that there's only a couple spaces between the 127.0.0.1 address and the website to block, in the hosts file I have a total of 5 spaces between the two.

Sorry for the multiple posts.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
