Preventing myself from accessing certain websites

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

Hello,

Is there any way to make some settings so I can't access certain websites? Perhaps something that can block certain websites for a set time, and won't allow me to access them no matter what I do, for a set amount of time? There are some online games that I do not want to play but I always see myself playing them and wasting my time. So can this be achieved?

Hi Marvin,
The steps to block the website in Internet Explorer are as follows:
1) Open Internet Explorer webpage
2) Go to 'Tools', Select 'Internet Options', Go to 'Content tab'

Internet-Options-window-in-Internet-Explorer

3) Click 'Enable', Go to 'Approved Sites', enter the websites you want to block
4) Enter a password to block it
5) When you want to access the website, you need to enter the password

The steps to block the website in Internet Explorer are as follows:
1) Go to the HOSTS file located at 'C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32DRIVERSETC'
2) Open the HOSTS in notepad
3) Type '127.0.0.1 name of the URL you want to block'
4) Close the notepad and answer 'Yes' when prompted
5) Reboot the system and the check for the blocked website
6) It will display an error message 'The Page cannot be displayed'

Hi there,

I also waste my time on certain websites. To block them I followed the following steps. They are given below:-

1. Open Windows Explorer and type in C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc

2. Open the host file with notepad.

3. Locate the line 127.0.0.1 localhost.

4. Press enter and create a new line.

5. You can now block any site but you have to preface it with 127.0.0.1, for example:- 127.0.0.1 facebook.com.

6. Save the file. If you can't do it right click on the hosts' file, choose Properties -> Security and make sure all the boxes are checked in your user account.

I hope my solution works for you.
