Yes you are. The bottom "Web Content Filtering" Page allows you to add individual domains. I use it to block facebook and youtube.

Do not forget to flush browser's cache and maybe even flugh the DNS cache
ipconfig /flushdns

thank you strivoli. can you kindly post a screenshot of the "Web Content Filtering" Page of OPenDNS.. for win7, how do you access it? or is it router specific? do i need to download any software from opendns?

Coffinated, it asks me to login into the acocunt.. i reset the password, and still waiting for a reply. i believe i am signed up for home service. but it was only an online signup- i did not download anything yet.

thanks again for your help.

a. The "Web Content Filtering" page Screen Shot of one of the networks I manage is attached.
b. OpenDNS.com is device agnostic. It works with any IP device (PCs, Smartphones, Tablets, and so on). As a result there's no specific configuration page for W7.
c. You can access the page after you have logged in OpenDNS.com.
d. NO. It isn't router specific.
e. You might need to download a software only if you have a dynamic public IP. If you have a static one, no software is needed.
