Hi,

I would like to stop access to certain web addresses on a few Windows XP machines, (without using anything like parental control).  Can anyone tell me if there is a facility in Microsoft Management Console that can block access to certain web addresses?

I've looked at the snap-ins available, I've gone through all of them (I think) and can't seem to find anything that resembles this.  I know how to do the very basics with MMC, that is all.

Otherwise is there any other way (such as additional snap-ins that can be installed??), or the use of software that anyone can suggest, that is not expensive!  

Cheers for any help!

Regards
Macey

In the properties of IE look at the security tab restricted sites. Add the sites in question to the restricted zone and you are done. You can also password protect these settings so that they cannot be modified by the user if needed.

Using your MMC you can create/modify the (Group Policy) Local computer policy or the Domain policy and make several changes there in reference to Zone Security and User Configuration that can be published enterprise wide.

Spend some time looking at the User Configuration settings of your Group Policy. You can really lock’em down if need be.

Hope this helps….
