Hi! I am trying to block a site and am running into issues. Please look at the example:

Need to block:

Still need access to:

I have tried modifying the host file to block the site and am only able to block Makes sense. I have also tired to do something using GPO, but looks like it will not work. The web filter will also only block and appears that is all that it will.

Does anyone know of a way to block in Windows 7? Each computer has IE, Chrome and Firefox. I am also running a Watch Guard Firebox, and have tried the use the webblocker, but had the same results.

Any ideas or suggestions will be appreciated! Thanks!

Not sure but, you may need aftermarket security software for what you are trying to do. For example at my place of employment I can access HTG site but unable to access forums.
