free software to block unwanted websites

Posted 08 July 2013 - 06:20 PM

Hi:

Please can anyone give me free software to block unwanted sites from PC. I have found one "NETDOGADMIN" but it is not free.
Are there any open source software to block unwanted websites like porn sites from personal computers?

Thank You!

You could try blocking the website in your HOSTS file rather than relying on some software to do it for you, that way Windows blocks it for you.


Like so :

127.0.0.1 www.website.com



This just makes your computer believe that "website.com" exists on your local machine (127.0.0.1), that way any call for this website is directed back into itself.
