The Internet Explorer web browser runs on all versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system. Internet Explorer allows users to restrict the websites the browser will display, so that children or library patrons are effectively prevented from visiting unsafe web sites. This restriction is accomplished by keeping a "black list" of forbidden sites. You can manage this list, and thus block certain webpages in Internet Explorer.
Launch Internet Explorer by clicking "Start," then "Internet Explorer." Click on "Tools," then on "Internet options," then on "Content."
Click on the tab labeled "Content," then on "Enable." Click on the tab labeled "General," then select "Users can see websites that have no rating."
Block a webpage by blacklisting it: click on "Approved sites," then enter the webpage's address under "Allow this website." Click on "Never," then on "OK." At this point, the web page is blocked and Internet Explorer will not render it.
