Disable web access via Group Policy but allow exceptions


I would like to disable web access with Internet Explorer via Group Policy but allow access to some pages. How should I configure this?

What I've done for those kind of situations where I don't need a robust Internet filter is configured a bogus proxy and then type in the websites you want exempt in the exceptions section.

You can find the setting under "User Configuration\Windows Settings\Internet Explorer Maintenance\Connection\Proxy Settings"

This is a user setting so you'll need to link it to an OU containing users or if you want to apply it to computers you can configure the loopback setting (use the Merge option) and link it to an OU containing the computers you want it to affect.

Let me know if you need more specific instructions.

Glad to help.... I usually don't ask but why a "B" grade? Is there something that I could have done better?
