all depends on how much you want to spend.

usually i recommend clients with a hardware solution, a linux pc sat betweent network and internet that uses (usually) squid to filter.

if thats not an option, look at things like net nanny, or maybe even just restricting them via the internet options. add the 3 sites to the allowed list, and set up the internet settings to dissalow. then lock out the properties using gpedit.msc

gpedit would basically allow you to restrict down the group policy.

basically, type start --> run --> gpedit.msc and it should open

in fact, heres a really simple cheeky way for you to block access.

1. Open Group Policy by running gpedit if you use local group policy or running Active Directory Users and Computers to create a group policy.

2. Click User configuration>Windows Settings>Internet Explorer Maintenance>Connection

3. Right-click on Proxy Settings and then Properties.

4. Check enable proxy Settings and type a fake IP address, for example 192.168.2.100 on HTTP (you don't have a proxy server or the proxy server is using the different IP).

5. Under exception, type the web server IP address, for example 192.168.2.10

6. Test it.

I need to reopen the question:
The web sites I need are EXTERNAL ....and your solution works internally.

Yes...but when the user goes to Internet Explorer options he can just uncheck "use proxy" I want the thing LOCKED>...

ok in that case - go to gpedit.msc . In User configuration - administrative templates - windows components - internet explorer - internet control panel - double click on "disable the connections page" select enable and click ok. you may or may not have to log off and login to have the policy take effect
