    Hi There,

    Does anyone know where I can find a piece of software that will allow me to block websites by URL and/or keywords that are applied to specific users/groups. I have to select the user/group this applies to.


    I am using a local machine not AD

    Thanks

    You can block IE's websites using Parental Controls in Windows and still use gpedit.msc to manipulate block lists.

    You can use Peer Guardian or PeerBlocker for IP/based blocking.

    You can use a whitelist for IE and block the other browsers.

    Firefox has site blocking using parental controls: Parental controls | How to | Firefox Support

    I use the Hosts file and an old app Hosts Toggle that makes it easy to load and turn off if I wish.
