How to Block Restricted Sites


Regulating websites on your shared computer is an important part of content control for your business or family PC. Blocking sites that a parent or administrator deems inappropriate is a way to make sure employees or family members aren't navigating to dangerous corners of cyberspace. No need for a specialist; even a novice PC user can block websites.

Things You'll Need

  • PC
  • Windows
  • Log in as the administrator to the PC on which you wish to block websites.

  • Navigate to the bottom, right-hand corner of the toolbar located near the time display. Right-click on "Windows Security Alerts." Select to open the security center.

  • Click on "Internet Options," located on the left-hand tab set.

  • Select the Privacy tab and navigate to the Sites tab to enter the Web address for the sites you wish to block. Click on "Block" once you have entered the address. Save your changes to the settings.

  • Navigate to the restricted website to make sure you saved the settings. The website will be blocked if you did.
