How To Block Access To Any Website With Windows Firewall
If we don’t want to access any website there is a easy solution which we practice every day that we don’t visit there but what about our children who don’t know much about right and wrong, so there is a inbuilt tool of Microsoft Windows called Windows Firewall, we are talking about Windows 7 only for firewall settings, you can change many windows firewall settings if desired.
You can customize three different network profiles in Windows 7: Home, Work and Public. When using a public network, you may choose to block any incoming connections, but at home or work if you want then let all incoming connections through. But if you want to block one individual website with Windows Firewall. Do with Windows Content Advisor.
Follow the instructions how to Block a website:
