    Instructions
    Blocking Site Access With Internet Explorer


    1
    Uninstall any web browsers on your computer other than Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is often the easiest browser to use to limit web site access.


    2
    Open Internet Explorer, click "Tools," then select "Internet Options."


    3
    Select the "Privacy" tab and click "Sites."


    4
    Enter the website you wish to block in the field provided; click "Block," and then choose "OK."

    Click "Start," then select "All Programs." Choose "Accessories," then "Command Prompt."

    Type the following string into the DOS command prompt produced by Step 1: "notepad https://C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts."


    7
