Internet browsing

We would like to block on one XP desktop any user browsing any website except 3 of our sites (eg: www.cnn.com, www.cdi.com, www.bell.com).
I need to implement only on one XP desktop with Internet explorer 7. This desktop is used for trading and would like to block users getting into any sites except the 3 sites of our choice. How will I do it?

Content Block, Privacy??? Please help me. thanks. We don't have any web blocking software on site.

thanks

Here are two choices.
1 Remove DNS settings from the users networks settings and add the IP's for the 3 websites in the local host file.
The PC will only be able to resolve what is in the local host file.

2. Use OpenDNS and manage from there.

Hello usuth,

You can use NetDog
http://www.netdogsoft.com

Choose the option "block all, only can visit great website list" in NetDogAdmin.exe, and add your 3 sites to the "great website list "

Hope this helps!
