What I'm willing to do is find out how to block pages like Myspace, Hotmail, Google from my computer silently and bring up a page like page cannot be found such like. My computer runs a Windows XP. I have been trying so hard to find out how to do this. My teacher taught me how to do such like block pages quitely from students, but now I am wishing that I could block pages from my computer it was such a great technique how my teacher did it. I would greatly appreciate your cooperation and quick response!

Search for the "hosts" file on your computer, open it with Notepad etc. It should look like:

Code: [ Select ]
# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#   102.54.94.97   rhino.acme.com     # source server
#    38.25.63.10   x.acme.com       # x client host

127.0.0.1    localhost

  3. # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
  4. #
  5. # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
  6. # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
  7. # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
  8. # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
  9. # space.
  10. #
  11. # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
  12. # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
  13. #
  14. # For example:
  15. #
  16. #   102.54.94.97   rhino.acme.com     # source server
  17. #    38.25.63.10   x.acme.com       # x client host
  18. 127.0.0.1    localhost


Where is says "127.0.0.1" put that in front of the domain of whatever site you are trying to block.

EX:

127.0.0.1 myspace.com

and your done. Try to open it in a browser and it comes up blank.


Google "hosts file" if you want to know more about it....likehttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial51.html

Hi I've been trying to do the same and after I do all the steps and I try to save it a box appears saying cannot create c:\Windows \System32\Drivers\Etc\Hosts file.

Make sure that the path and file name are correct.
