    I have typed in some sites in Internet Explorer 6 in Tools>Internet Options>Security Tab>Restricted Sites>Sites.. and I have typed in some sites like http://*gain.com and stuff like that but it wont block cause I typed in the address to see if it would work and it doesn't. The site still goes through. I tried deleting Temporary Internet Files and restarting my browser but it still don't do it. Does anyone know why and what should I do.

    i don't think it blocks your browser from opening these sites
    just makes it more secure when browsing them

    Restricted sites zone: This zone contains sites you don't trust—sites that you're not sure whether you can download or run files from without damage to your computer or data. You can assign sites to this zone. The default security level for the Restricted sites zone is High, therefore, Internet Explorer will block all cookies from Web sites in this zone.

    To block the site form opening at all i think you can do it in the hosts file.

    go to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\
    the file is called hosts, with no file exensions, just "HOSTS"

    open it with notepad and scroll to the bottom of the file and add something like this:

    Code:
    127.0.0.1 www.whateversite.com
    the 127.0.0.1 tells teh hosts file to redirect the blocked site to that ip adress (127.0.0.1 = localhost)
    and the www.whateversite.com is the site you're blocking.

    hope that helps you.
