I have Windows XP Professional on a standalone machine. I have SBC Yahoo DSL. I am using the Tools/Internet Options/Content/Content Advisor section to prevent accessing certain sites. However, with this option, it prevents access to certain sites even if they don't have any rating unless I have exclusively added the site to the list. It is a big pain to go and add each and every site. I am looking for a tool or a way to restrict access based on site rating or content. Also, let's say, if I want to prevent access to a site which contains a certain word, I would like to do that.

Thanks in advance.

I think apart from what is shown here  ( you may know this)
http://www.icra.org/_en/faq/contentadvisor

there is nothing inbuilt in IE to prevent access.

However , you may have to depend on third-party software to do the job

Easiest way to do is to install a firewall like zonealarm and configure it to block websites that you donot want to be gone to

What is the best thrid-party spftware? I downloaded Cyberpatrol but it isn't doing things the way I want. It either locks everything of locks nothing. The results were unsatisfactory. That is why I was expecting recommendations about other software.
