How to Access Restricted Websites on Windows XP

Save

Parents normally block certain websites, which may include gaming or other unnecessary websites in order to restrict their children's access to them. However, if one of your favorite websites is accidentally blocked, Windows enables you to unblock and access it. You may also block websites using the same feature. Here's how to access restricted sites and how to block them again:
