    How to block websites without software->

    Steps:


    1] Browse C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

    2] Find the file named "HOSTS"

    3] Open it in notepad

    4] Under "127.0.0.1 localhost" Add 127.0.0.2 www.sitenameyouwantblocked.com , and that site will no longer be accessable.

    5] Done!

    -So-

    127.0.0.1 localhost
    127.0.0.2 www.blockedsite.com

    -->www.blockedsite.com is now unaccessable<--


    For every site after that you want to add, just add "1" to the last number in the internal ip (127.0.0.2) and then add like before. Example: 127.0.0.3 www.blablabla.com
    127.0.0.4 www.blablabla.com
    127.0.0.5 www.blablabla.com
    etc.
