Restrict Browsing to a Single Domain, Revisited

I like the proxy method rather than the hosts file that was mentioned.  There are third part programs that can do this too but this is a good free method that should help out.

Pesky interns :)

Hi mirekg,
I use the "Content Advisor" function built into IE
You can specify an acceptable site or sites and when enabled, the content advisor will limit browsing to only the specified site(s).
It's located at Tools, Internet Options, Content from within IE

It's pretty flexible because the admin can disable to perform maintenance and then enable for user.

Good luck,
