How to block a website

By Doctor_hv
Dec 17, 2008
  1. I would like to block access to a specific web site in Firefox and IE7, but I don't want the person to know that I have blocked the access (my friend just can't get off some sites and I can't be rude to tell him to f** off because I have to work) so if I use content blocker he gets the alert...
    So, is there any program I could use to block off access to some sites in all programs without the person using them knowing it has been blocked... :)
    Thanks...

    use NSLOOKUP www.whateverdomain.com to get the ip address

    add the ip address to the host file located at
    \windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

    and the line should look like
    ip address <some spaces> ip address from nslookup​

    this needs to be performed on the system your friend is using :(
