    Just do this and block unwanted softwares from accesing .

    Steps:

    1] Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
    2] Find the file named "HOSTS"
    3] Open it in notepad
    4] Under "127.0.0.1 localhost" Add 127.0.0.2 www.thesitenamethatyouwantblock.com , and that site will no longer be accessable.
    5] Done!

    -So-

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    127.0.0.2 www.blockedsite.com

    -->www.blockedsite.com is now unaccessable<--


    For every site after that you want to add, just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip (127.0.0.2) and then the addy like before.

    IE: 127.0.0.3 www.blablabla.com
    127.0.0.4 www.blablabla.com
    127.0.0.5 www.blablabla.com

    The hosts file can be altered or removed easily as well.
    Time to time, even trojan/virus uses it.

    hi,
    great advice. Blocks the ads from loading which makes a safer and faster sufing experience. Usually one of my first steps after installing a fresh copy of Windows.
