Blocking URL/group policies?

Recommended Posts

Guest Weasel526   

I've heard that with the group policies in XP pro you can customize user settings down to the icons you can push. Only thing is I don't know how to use it. Here is one thing that I would REALLY like to do, does anyone know how to do this:

I would like to block a URL for a certain user in XP. I don't necesarily want to download a big bloatware net-nany type program to block ONE URL, anyone have any ideas?

Hey.. i've never tried this myself but here goes....

Tools --> Internet options ---> content (tab) --->(content advisor) "Enable" ---> aprroved sites (tab) and then just type in the site that you don't want to be accesable and then choose never.. While you're in there take a look at the other tabs to see about password settings and stuff like that.

Hope that helps

Thanks, that works OK. I would prefer it to be just one user specific user that it blocks/asks for a password. The IE content thing applies to all users, but it still does what I need to do.

Thanks a bunch.
