I am using win2k os. I have created two users accounts ACC_A and ACC_B. ACC_A is an adminstrator account. ACC_B is a generic user account (can't alter the system).

I have blocked a website at ACC_A (e.g. www.123.com was added to the restricted site via internet explorer - security). Why ACC_B still can access this website?

What should I do so that ACC_B is unable to access this site(e.g. www.123.com)?

Thanks

Well i think you can go and edit the HOSTS file and block it

in windows 2000, go here C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
and open HOSTS file using Notepad

Make sure to backup hosts before changing it

then give this entry
127.0.0.1   www.123.com 

and save the hosts file

now check if ACC_B can access that site or not

So, you logged into the pc with acc_a, restriced the site in the Internet Explorer tools, logged off, logged on as Acc_B and the site still worked?

Thats normal behaviour as the IE settings are defined for each local user unless you have policies setup.

A way around this is to setup one account how you want it and then copy that account to the All Users profile and also enable some IE policies so you can't get into the menu to change it back.

Thank you for both of you!
I have tried both suggestions for a couple of days.
1. Sunray's suggestion is working but none of the account can access www.123.com. Am I doing right? Is it possible to make ACC_A able to access www.123.com and ACC_B not?
2. As for Stoner's suggestion, I don't know how to setup the user policy (I am a newbie to do this kind of thing). Would you mind giving me a very simple example?

Thank!!!
